Reviews

"The author's focus on social life is very refreshing and his highly original approach leads to various surprising but potentially testable ideas. One day, the separate approaches to subsistence and social life of our ancestors will have to be integrated, as we know they are in real life. Meanwhile, Dunbar's proposals form a great start to this dialogue." -- Quarterly Review of Biology "Dunbar's idea has gained in popularity among many scholars, and his narrative is so mesmerizing it may attract many general readers, too." --Publishers Weekly, starred review "Human Evolution offers a compelling story, one that resonates with human nature even now." --Maclean's "A compelling journey into human nature, from the roots of our sociality to the rise of storytelling." --Nature
