Less than fifty thousand years ago mankind had no art, no religion, no sophisticated symbolism, no innovative thinking. Then, in a dramatic and electrifying change, described by scientists as "the greatest riddle in human history," all the skills and qualities that we value most highly in ourselves appeared already fully formed, as though bestowed on us by hidden powers.

Any additional comments?

I have been a fan of Mr. Hancock for over 20 years. He has outdone himself with this book. I found that, several times while listening, I had to pause the book and just let the information soak in and let my mind ponder all the implications of what I was learning before I could listen to anymore. The balance that he strikes between self discovery and research is well done. While it is obvious that the experiences, ideas and knowledge he has gained has been life altering for him, I never feel like Mr Hancock gets on a pulpit and preaches. He simply lays out the journey that he has been on for the listener and leaves it up to that same listener to make of it what they will.
The only issue that I have is that at the end of the book I had so many questions ... And I am not really sure how to start down the path of discovery for myself!
