"'The Ancestor's Tale' made things a lot clearer for me."

Absolutely. Dawkins' book is great! I especially like the concept of the modern-day human moving backwards in time to meet his "cousins" (first the Chimpanzee and Bonobo, then the Gorilla, and so on).

I also liked Dawkons' use of the term "concestors" to mean "common ancestors".

I think The Ancestor's Tale, and Sykes' The Seven Daughters of Eve are wonderful introductions to paleoanthropology, as is anything by Jared Diamond, (although I disagree with some of his conclusions).

It's good to see someone else who likes that book!!
