Once a Wolf: The Science Behind Our Dogs' Astonishing Genetic Evolution

Rich in accessible analogies that deftly explain complex scientific concepts, this is a must-read for anybody who has wondered about the origins of humans' best friend.

Bigfoot, Yeti, and the Last Neanderthal: A Geneticist's Search for Modern Apemen

For those fascinated by Bigfoot, the author's personal experiences in tracking down this creature will probably be of interest, but anyone hoping for scientific proof will be disappointed. Worth buying only for libraries that must have everything written on this subject.


Examining the influence of ancient populations on current culture rather than on the evolution of specific genetic traits, this volume provides a nice complement to Sam Kean's The Violinist's Thumb. Recommended for general readers with an interest in the interaction of genetics and genealogy.
