Críticas:

To follow the dramatic announcements that will be appearing in the media pretty regularly from now on concerning new fossil finds and detailed genetic knowledge on the mutations that distinguish us from Neanderthals, other hominins, and apes, you will need a primer to make sense of the story so far. Here is that book. (Peter Forbes The Guardian)

The Origin of Our Species combines anecdote and speculation with crisp explanation of the latest science in the study of the first humans. (John Hawks New Scientist)

When it comes to human evolution [Chris Stringer] is as close to the horse's mouth as it gets... The Origin of Our Species should be the one-stop source on the subject. Read it now (Henry Gee BBC Focus)

Combining the thrill of a novel with a remarkable depth of perspective, the book offers a panorama of recent developments...Stringer's original ideas will open up avenues for those who deal with genes, fossils or artefacts. (Jean-Jacques Hublin Nature)

The Origin of Our Species [is] the right book by the right author at the right time. It highlights just how many tantalising discoveries and analytical advances have enriched the field in recent years, and folds them into an appropriately comprehensive, generous and nuanced reflection. (Marek Kohn Literary Review)

The Origin of Our Species starts as a clear, perceptive survey. It ends by introducing a new way of defining us and our place in history (Mike Pitts Sunday Times)

Sets out to tackle the big questions about human origins...written in a personal, unpretentious style...a laudable summary of a vital subject (Matt Grove British Archaeology)

The most up to date synthesis available (Steven Mithen London Review of Books)

Stringer's writing style is lucid and all-embracing, pulling information and ideas together from all conceivable sources to support his central narrative ... stimulating, informative and entertaining. It deserves to be widely read (Stephen K. Donovan Geological Journal)

Reseña del editor:

Chris Stringer's bestselling The Origin of our Species tackles the big questions in the ongoing debate about the beginnings of human life on earth.

Do all humans originate from Africa? How did we spread across the globe? Are we separate from Neanderthals, or do some of us actually have their genes? When did humans become 'modern' - are traits such as art, technology, language, ritual and belief unique to us? Has human evolution stopped, or are we still evolving?

Chris Stringer has been involved in much of the crucial research into the origins of humanity, and here he draws on a wealth of evidence - from fossils and archaeology to Charles Darwin's theories and the mysteries of ancient DNA - to reveal the definitive story of where we came from, how we lived, how we got here and who we are.

  Sunday Times

'When it comes to human evolution Chris Stringer is as close to the horse's mouth as it gets ... The Origin of Our Species should be the one-stop source on the subject. Read it now'

'Britain's foremost expert on human evolution ... you need a primer to make sense of the story so far. Here is that book'
  Guardian
