“This is a very fun, sometimes hilarious, rigorously skeptical look at the current Paleo craze—the attempt by many to live as people did in the Paleolithic Age. The theory goes that (almost all) things were better then and that 'modern' developments such as agriculture and drinking milk are causing us all sorts of problems. Marlene Zuk is a professor of biology at UC Riverside and gives us an informative update on some of the latest research in evolution and how rapidly it can happen. She then proceeds with her gentle debunking of all things Paleo, covering a broad range of topics that our Caveman ancestors were supposedly more wise about: diet, exercise, love, family relations, and health. She doesn't have an axe to grind with the Paleo Proponents, but she has a 'bemused fascination' with the phenomenon.” —Andy, Annie Bloom's Books, Portland.
