    Ever since Darwin and The Descent of Man, the existence of humans has been attributed to our intelligence and adaptability. But in Catching Fire, renowned primatologist Richard Wrangham presents a startling alternative: our evolutionary success is the result of cooking. In a groundbreaking theory of our origins, Wrangham shows that the shift from raw to cooked foods was the key factor in human evolution.

    KHarrang says: "Fascinating book about early human development..."
    "Very interesting and intriguing"
    Overall

    This is a book that suggests a very interesting hypothesis that never occurred to me: that cooking made the apes human! This is a strong insight into the descent of man on Earth. The whole saga is revealed with "detective" skills by the author and this makes the lecture interesting to follow.
    Some of the findings are also useful for the modern man trying to fight obesity and other are important from the anthropological perspective to the modern life issues as man-female relationship and place in society.
    A very good book!
