The Ancestor's Tale: A Pilgrimage to the Dawn of Evolution by Richard Dawkins
In The Ancestor's Tale, Richard Dawkins tells the evolutionary story of the human race, backwards. By exploring the evolutionary processes and the genetics behind them, he moves backward in time to find our common ancestors, from chimps to gorillas to other mammals and birds and eventually to the common bacterial ancestor of all life on earth. Along the way, he also explains how evolution has affected other species of life, both to their advantage and disadvantage. The Ancestor's Tale is a mix of scientific explanation for the lay person and intricate genetic theory for those who want to understand more. Richard Dawkins' book has received mostly positive reviews with The Telegraph saying, "The Ancestor's Tale makes you feel you have seen the world in a fresh, exhilarating way."
