'Thinking Big is like the Big Bang: it probably isn't the total answer, but there is no doubt that it answers a large number of observable phenomena, and it will serve as the dominant model for debating and refining our ideas about the origins and evolution of human cognition for decades to come' - Society of Antiquaries Newsletter 'A delightful compendium of history, theory and fascinating experiments that will keep you engaged throughout' - BBC Focus 'You will not read a more important book this year. It could make us a little wiser about ourselves' - Minerva 'Thinking Big is destined to become a classic' - Brian Fagan, Emeritus Professor of Anthropology, University of California
