A Most Interesting Problem, a Review

This last month I had the pleasant experience of reading “A Most Interesting Problem, What Darwin Got Right and Wrong About Human Evolution” edited by Jeremy DeSilva and written by a variety of top professors on the subjects, this book gives an insightful, modern, and up to date views, hypotheses and thesis on Human Evolution, variation, sexual selection and so much more.

Published by Princeton Press 150 years after Darwin published “The Decent of Man” this book is an amazing and must read for any anthropologist or biologist.

This book goes into great detail on the basic foundations of Human evolution and explores the topics, both controversial and easily understood in a dynamic and easy way to read and understand.

From Agustin Fuentes (Check out our interview with him here.) to Ann Gibbons we hear from a wide variety of top scientists of their fields talking about things form skin color, to the human fossil record.

This book is one of, if not the most up to date book on the subject and is a must read for anyone interested in the subject. You will love this read!

We learn what Darwin got right 150 years ago, and we learn about a-lot of the things that he was misunderstanding or plainly wrong about. Such as race and biological skin colors and differences.

With glorious reviews from kings and queens in the scientific field such as Nina Jablonski and Daniel Lieberman, I too, for what it counts, add my review to their glowing ones.

If you are looking for the most up to date ideas about human biology, where these ideas come from, Darwinism and natural selection, than this is for you!

You cannot go wrong by getting and reading this book, we highly recommend it!

Coming up on the 25th of March we are hosting Jerry as our next guest to talk about this book, “A Most Interesting Problem” and his role in its creation, as well as his own book “First Steps: How Upright Walking Made us Human” which comes out April 6th 2021 which we are reading and getting ready to review as we speak, can be bought here.

You can grab this amazing book here, ebook or hardcover. Whats also awesome and goes with this, is a lecture put on by The Leakey Foundation which goes over many of the chapters with some of the authors on their contributions to the book. Its great! Dont miss it.

And there you go! So grab this book today! I give it 5 stars! Captivating and oh so very informative!
