About this book

At some point during the last 100,000 years, humans began exhibiting traits and behaviour that distinguished us from other animals, eventually creating language, art, religion, bicycles, spacecraft and nuclear weapons – all within a heartbeat of evolutionary time. Now, faced with the threat of nuclear weapons and the effects of climate change, it seems our innate tendencies for violence and invention have led us to a crucial tipping point. Where did these traits come from? Are they part of our species' immutable destiny? Or is there hope for our species' future if we change?

The grown-ups' edition is also available.
