Entertaining, but sketchy on facts
am 3. Juli 2000
This book was a joy to read, but it must definately be taken with a grain of salt. In attempting to justify a long evolution of the human psyche, Sagen credits our fear of snakes with the struggle between humans and dinosaurs and our fascination with the skies with our time spent in the treetops - a bit farfetched, I think. Some of the tidbits thrown in - that humans are the only animals who experience pain in childbirth, for instance - are completely fabricated. Yet I would still recommend this book, for the science presented is made fascinating by the surrounding speculation.
