Product description


"'An amazing book about the human head, I've never seen anything like it... A very heady, heady experience... Thrilling' Lynne Truss, Sunday Times 'Fascinating... A wonderful treasury of stupefying facts, a sort of "Ripley's Believe It Or Not" compendium... This is a wonderful book.' Michael Simkins, Mail On Sunday 'The pages burst with an entertaining mixture of intriguing facts and thought-provoking observations.' Andrew Robinson, New Scientist"

Book Description

The ability of the human index finger to point is truly unique in the animal world. In Michaelangelo's Finger Raymond Tallis shows just how central this seemingly insignificant difference has been in determining the amazing evolutionary pathway of the human being.
