all think we know the story first we evolved to walk upright, then use tools, then agriculture, language, and us an inexorable linear progression from ape to human But Ian Tattersall introduces us to several different human like precursors, all alive at the same time, as recently as 50,000 years ago just barely before the period we humans chauvinistically refer to as history So it s no longer straightforward beasts like us emerged several times within the past hundred thousand years, some of them distinct species Some were the first to think like we do in symbols and abstractions those were our forebears But while they were alive, these multiple different humanoids may have known about each other interacted fought lived together or apart possibly even bred It turns out that our lineage is anything but linear Tattersall demolishes the versions we were once taught, and lays out the remarkable new history of our diverse origins for the first time Richard Granger, author of Big
