Before the Dawn: Recovering the Lost History of Our Ancestors - Nicholas Wade (Audiobook)

In Before the Dawn, Nicholas Wade, science writer for the New York Times, traces our ancestral population’s unlikely prehistoric passage out of Africa through the Gate of Grief, eastward into Sunda and Sahul for some, northward into modern day Turkey and Iran for others. Mastery of language, pair mating, and a swiftly swelling intellect were among the crucial innovations that allowed humans to embark on this epic voyage, to overcome their aggressive hunter-gatherer past, and embrace a settled, cooperative, and civilized future.

This is by far the best book on human evolution. It is a shame that it did not hit the best-seller list.
