By Marlene Zuk

An exposé of pseudoscientific myths approximately our evolutionary earlier and the way we must always dwell today.
We developed to consume berries instead of bagels, to dwell in dust huts instead of condos, to dash barefoot instead of play football—or did we? Are bodies and brains really at odds with smooth lifestyles? even though it could seem as if we've got slightly had time to shed our hunter-gatherer legacy, biologist Marlene Zuk unearths that the tale isn't so basic. renowned theories approximately how our ancestors lived—and why we must always emulate them—are frequently in keeping with hypothesis, no longer clinical proof.
Armed with a razor-sharp wit and remarkable, eye-opening examine, Zuk takes us to the innovative of biology to teach that evolution can paintings a lot speedier than was once formerly discovered, which means that we're not biologically just like our caveman ancestors.

Contrary to what the smooth magazines may have us think, we don't take pleasure in potato chips simply because they crunch like the bugs our forebears snacked on. and girls don’t cross into shoe-shopping frenzies simply because their prehistoric foremothers accumulated assets for his or her clans.

As Zuk compellingly argues, such ideals incorrectly think that we’re stuck—finished evolving—and were for tens of hundreds of thousands of years. She attracts on interesting proof that examines every thing from adults’ skill to drink milk to the feel of our ear wax to teach that we’ve truly by no means stopped evolving. Our nostalgic visions of an amazing evolutionary prior within which we ate, lived, and reproduced as we have been “meant to” fail to acknowledge that we have been by no means ideally fitted to our surroundings. Evolution is ready swap, and each organism is filled with trade-offs.

From debunking the caveman nutrition to unraveling gender stereotypes, Zuk provides an engrossing research of frequent paleofantasies and the clinical proof that undermines them, the entire whereas broadening our knowing of our origins and what they could fairly let us know approximately our current and our future.
