In this landmark book of popular science Daniel E. Lieberman gives us a lucid and engaging account of how the human body evolved over millions of years. He illuminates the major transformations that contributed to key adaptations to the body: the rise of bipedalismthe shift to a non-fruit-based dietthe advent of hunting and gatheringand how cultural changes like the Agricultural and Industrial Revolutions have impacted us physically. He shows how the increasing disparity between the jumble of adaptations in our Stone Age bodies and advancements in the modern world is occasioning a paradox: greater longevity but increased chronic disease. And finally�provocatively�he advocates the use of evolutionary information to help nudge push and sometimes even compel us to create a more salubrious environment and pursue better lifestyles.�[With charts and line drawings throughout.]Read more
