Nicholas Wades articles are a major reason why the science section has become the most popular, nationwide, in the New York Times. In his groundbreaking Before the Dawn, Wade reveals humanitys origins as never beforea journey made possible only recently by genetic science, whose incredible findings have answered such questions as: What was the first human language like? How large were the first societies, and how warlike were they? When did our ancestors first leave Africa, and by what route did they leave? By eloquently solving these and numerous other mysteries, Wade offers nothing less than a uniquely complete retelling of a story that began 500 centuries ago.

I read the hard copy version a couple of years ago. The author combined recent genetic studies with the existing linguistic and archeological evidence of human migrations. Fascinating.
This book is a fascinating account of how modern advances in genetics is allowing us to learn things about our ancient past. From the first humans leaving Africa and spreading around the globe, to language and evolution, the book is filled with amazing leaps in knowledge based on recent DNA studies.
Before the Dawn
A brilliant account of how genetics compliments the study of human evolution. It's the kind of book that you want to read again and again to make sure you capture all the elements that Wade recounts so clearly. A really useful research tool if studying this complicated field.
More please, Mr Wade.
