Ever wonder why 30 kids will sit in a chair and obey the teacher all day, the exact opposite of a room full of monkeys?
If we’ve hunted big game for 3 million years, why do we get gout if we eat too much red meat?
Why did we switch to 2-foot locomotion if we can’t we outrun a squirrel on flat ground, and all apes using 4 limbs run faster than us?
Why is our nose a hood over our nostrils?
Why did our ancestors built burial mounds–it wasn’t to send a message to aliens!
And most importantly, after 4 million years of excruciatingly slow development, how did we become smart around 12,000 years ago when we suddenly started building houses and cities, began farming, and invented writing, money and dozens of other things that make us human?
From the conditions that make genetic change occur in an eyeblink to human mound-building beginning 12,000 years ago, our path from instinct to intelligence has been an interplay of fortuitous timing and horrible weather. Writing in plain English with a touch of wry humor, Hartwig focuses the full gamut of archaeological research, physiology, genetics and biology onto this one aspect: how a small ape went from tree-dwelling in the tropics to advanced education in brick-built colleges in only five million years.

About the Author
Lynnette Hartwig, Engineer, Project Manager and lifelong archaeology fiend, is an outsider stretching the edges of entrenched beliefs as no one whose livelihood depends on academia approval can do without losing their job.
She's active in several organizations including an inventor's association, Mensa, Independent Book Publisher's Association, and the Archaeological Institute of America.
In one sense she's researched this book since she was 8. In another, she kicked it into high gear for two years, delighting that in even that time, new genetic findings were fitting 100% with her theories, even as they embarrassed and confused the anthropology community, which cannot reconcile the data with their beliefs, which are plainly as false as the nose on your face.
