Pschologist Stan Gooch brings a combination of science and parapsychology to bear in examining the basis for the theory of evolution. By studying the earliest ancestors of modern man, Gooch ties the behaviors of Neanderthal and Cro-Magnon to those we all share today. It's an intriguing book that focuses on the evolution of the brain that makes us what we are and how it evolved from our primitive ancestors. While couched in modern science, there is a flavor of the paranormal enthusiast in Gooch's writing that keeps you on your toes. As American culture struggles with the conflicts between science and religion, books like this help us to examine our own beliefs and how we teach our children.
