Could have been better.,
This review is from: The Incredible Human Journey (Paperback)
After reading the book cover to cover I thought it was extremely well structured and informed when explaining various theories and aspects of the humans movements across the continents. I also found that the wide range of scientific approaches allow the book to be enjoyable and accessible to a wide range of audiences. For example whereas I found experimental archaeology segments particularly entertaining others I know enjoyed the genetics.
Despite this I found that the 1st person account of the authors personal experience did take away the enjoyment to some degree. These segments were often too long too frequent and broke the flow of the book.
Overall a good buy if you like travel writing but maybe not so much if all you ant is the facts and theories.
