This book is also about DNA, except it looks the other way, back across the sweep of time to the seven original women whose mitochondrial DNA - or "maternal" DNA if you like - is handed down from generation to generation and is still carried by everyone of European descent today.

It is a book that chronicles many of the most exciting developments in genetics over the past decade by a man who is not only a brilliant scientist but also a gifted and thoroughly engaging writer.
It ultimately demonstrates how much more we still have to discover about the absorbing story of human evolution. In Professor Bryan Sykes, a leading world authority on DNA and human evolution, was called in to examine the frozen remains of a man trapped in glacial ice in northern Italy.
News of both the Ice Man's discovery and his age, which was put at over five thousand years, fascinated scientists and newspapers throughout the world. Included in the ride is a debunking of the Kon Tiki explanation of the populating of the South Sea islands and a fairly simple to understand background in what e This is a good read, fascinating and well told. Included in the ride is a debunking of the Kon Tiki explanation of the populating of the South Sea islands and a fairly simple to understand background in what exactly DNA is and why we can use it to gain an amazing insight into history.
Truly, there are great changes coming in how we understand ourselves thanks to the ability to now know, for certain, the early story of our violent, incredible species.
Throughout the book are little knockout nuggest: it might have been one woman who walked out of Africa, for example, and populated the rest of the world. How mind boggling is that?
It begins perfectly and reaches halfway with barely a glitch, but then, once the main theory is outlined, becomes padded out near the end. Instead we get interesting but jarring chapters on each "daughter of Eve" and a conclusion which reads more like journalism. None of us are different, genetically speaking. We might "believe" in religions, money or countries, but they are artifical, imaginary constructs.
