Review

Whether reading as a student or simply someone interested in how we came to be who we are today, Last Ape Standing provides a captivating look at science's evidence of evolution. (ShelfAwareness)

A fluid introduction to the development of the human species. (Booklist)

[An] engrossing, up-to-date account of human evolution (Kirkus)

[A] captivating and information field trip through man's paleontological past...an exceptionally well-written overview of man's evolutionary history as well as an accessible guide to the underappreciated field of paleoanthropology. (Booklist)

[An] engaging account...shed[s] a fascinating light on our evolutionary success. (New Yorker)

Chip Walter has made himself indispensable to audiences craving the latest information about our evolutionary past. No one write about early man, evolutionary dead ends or our pre-human rivals better than Chip Walter. If all science books were this witty and well-written, everyone would be a nerd. (Pittsburgh Post Gazette)

Walter takes an antic delight in the triumphal adaptations and terrifying near misses of human evolution...Last Ape Standing makes for a lively journey. (New York Times Book Review)

Thumbs, Toes, and Tears was a Book Sense pick.

Fascinating and superbly written. (Publishers Weekly on Thumbs, Toes...)
