A preeminent geneticist, winner of the 2022 Nobel Prize in medicine, hunts the Neanderthal and Denisovan genomes to answer the biggest question of them all: how did our ancestors become human? Neanderthal Man tells the riveting personal and scientific story of the quest to use ancient DNA to unlock the secrets of human evolution. Beginning with the study of DNA in Egyptian mummies in the early 1980s and culminating in the sequencing of the Neanderthal genome in 2010, Neanderthal Man describes the events, intrigues, failures, and triumphs of these scientifically rich years through the lens of the pioneer and inventor of the field of ancient DNA, Svante Pääbo. We learn that Neanderthal genes offer a unique window into the lives of our ancient relatives and may hold the key to unlocking the mysteries of where language came from as well as why humans survived while Neanderthals went extinct. Pääbo redrew our family tree and permanently changed the way we think about who we are and how we got here. For readers of Richard Dawkins, David Reich, and Hope Jahren, Neanderthal Man is the must-read account of how he did it.

Who are we? Where are we from? These questions have troubled people for centuries. The textbooks have long taught us that human beings evolved from anthropoid apes. Today, a new science, molecular anthropology, tells us this: 7 billion human beings in the world share a common grand, grand…father, the Y-chromosome Adam, and share a common grand, grand…mother, the Mitochondrial Eve. After reading information in this book, you will be convinced that human beings could not be the result of evolution, sudden mutation, or in any way related to the anthropoid apes.
