Christopher Wills is Professor of Biology at the University of California. In his popular books, which include Yellow Fever, Black Goddess, he offers fascinating insights into the world of biological science and how it affects our daily lives. Children of Prometheus answers three basic but intriguing questions: Are we still evolving? If so, how? What are we evolving into? As Wills traces the many forms of natural selection in Part I, he considers examples ranging from Sherpas to British civil servants. Part II examines the stormy evolutionary history that moved us beyond chimpanzees and gorillas. The final section looks ahead to the sorts of diversity the future holds for our species as we live longer and challenge our minds and bodies in new ways. Clearly written, touched with humor, and soundly reasoned, Children of Prometheus will delight anyone who is curious about who we are and where we are going. Narrator Richard M. Davidson's lucid performance complements Christopher Wills' accessible work and its provocative conclusion. Download and start listening now!
