‘Charming.’

»

Simon Ings, New Scientist

«

‘Absorbing, amusing, and enlightening; a charming exploration not only of evolution, but of human enquiry and wonder.’

»

Rebecca Wragg Sykes, author of <em>Kindred: Neanderthal life, love, death and art</em>

«

‘Written with humour and lightly-worn learning, this book makes the familiar strange and the strange uncannily familiar; a fascinating journey into our shared prehistory via the shops, galleries, restaurants, playgrounds, and parks of a twenty-first century city.’

»

Helen Gordon, author of <em>Notes from Deep Time: A Journey Through Our Past and Future World</em>

«

‘Millás is one of the writers with the most truth per square centimetre of a page.’

»

Antonio Iturbe, What to Read

«

‘We like wise men to explain things to us and understand each other. This is what Arsuaga does wonderfully in his book, a luminous treatise on life, the universe, and human existence.’

»

Víctor M. Amela, La Vanguardia

«

‘Juan José Millás is the owner of a fantastic territory of unquestionable personality.’

»

J.E. Ayala-Dip, El País

«

‘Juan Luis Arsuaga has recounted that prodigious start of human life with all the force of the great chronicles of travel and discoveries, with his double talent as a storyteller and scientist.’

»

Antonio Muñoz Molina

«

‘[Arsuaga] is one of the world’s leading experts on the evolution of our species, as well as a prestigious scientist and a born populariser.’

»

Ixone Díaz Landaluce, ABC

«

‘Millás takes advantage of the present to tell us about his life, to express his perplexity, which is ours, before the passing of the world … Navigating through it allows our imagination to travel.’

»

Fernando Delgado, La Opinion

«

‘Novelist Millás … and palaeontologist Arsuaga combine forces in this introspective and playful exploration of human prehistory and evolution … Erudite yet fun, this is an illuminating trip into the past.’

»

Publishers Weekly

«

‘A lovely book, full of information and wisdom … No doubt comparisons will be made to Yuval Noah Harari’s Sapiens, but Life as Told By a Sapiens to a Neanderthal, is much more fun … It makes you want more. What better recommendation for any book can there be than this? Roll on Life as Told By a Sapiens to a Neanderthal volume 2.’
