Revue de presse :

"Pääbo provides a riveting, personal account of the development of paleogenetics and the technical revolution that made the field possible."―Science

"Neanderthal Man is a revealing history of a new scientific field."―Carl Zimmer, New York Times Book Review

"If there is one name associated with ancient DNA, it is Svante Pääbo.... Neanderthal Man is perfectly timed, beautifully written and required reading."―Nature

"Pääbo has provided us with a fabulous account of three decade of research into ancient DNA, culminating in 2010 with the publication of the Neanderthal genome."―New York Review of Books

"Highly recommended." Choice

"The world's foremost expert on recovering ancient DNA tells the inside story of what it took to reconstruct the Neanderthal genome."―The Christian Century, Essential Books on Evolution and Human Origins

"This is a fascinating story of how modern science and especially computer technology is opening vistas onto our prehistoric history." The Explorers Journal

"Pääbo provides a fascinating look at how his personal life intersected with the founding of a scientific field that has revolutionized evolution." Science News

"Pääbo paints a picture of how a major scientific advance rose out of a mix of politics, persuasion, careful management, and struggles with technology and technique. For that alone, it's valuable."―Ars Technica

"Scientific understanding of earlier humans is fast evolving. For the nonce, this is a go-to volume on the subject for serious readers." Library Journal

Présentation de l'éditeur :

What can we learn from the genomes of our closest evolutionary relatives? "Neanderthal Man" tells the story of geneticist Svante Paabo's mission to answer this question, and recounts his ultimately successful efforts to genetically define what makes us different from our Neanderthal cousins. Beginning with the study of DNA in Egyptian mummies in the early 1980s and culminating in the sequencing of the Neanderthal genome in 2010, Neanderthal Man describes the events, intrigues, failures, and triumphs of these scientifically rich years through the lens of the pioneer and inventor of the field of ancient DNA. We learn that Neanderthal genes offer a unique window into the lives of our hominin relatives and may hold the key to unlocking the mystery of why humans survived while Neanderthals went extinct. Drawing on genetic and fossil clues, Paabo explores what is known about the origin of modern humans and their relationship to the Neanderthals and describes the fierce debate surrounding the nature of the two species' interactions. His findings have not only redrawn our family tree, but recast the fundamentals of human history--the biological beginnings of fully modern Homo sapiens, the direct ancestors of all people alive today. A riveting story about a visionary researcher and the nature of scientific inquiry, "Neanderthal Man" offers rich insight into the fundamental question of who we are.
