We share 99 per cent of our genes with apes and even 66 per cent with a tasty grape. In "99% Ape: How Evolution Adds Up" leading experts provide a clear and accessible guide to evolution by natural selection. Even today, the only mechanism we know of that can produce adaptation is Darwin's revolutionary theory. This fascinating book introduces the fundamental theories of evolution and discusses advances in our understanding since Darwin's discovery.
It explores our own origins and the genealogy of all living things, as well as highlighting the key turning points throughout history. Additional chapters bring Darwin's theory up to date covering: species diversity including the classic tale of Darwin's finches; evolutionary psychology and the human mind; the question of morality; and the problem with 'intelligent design'. With historical vignettes of Darwin's own life and work throughout, "99% Ape: How Evolution Adds Up" is a comprehensive introduction to evolution and all the latest thinking on the subject.
