As a basic, non-technical overview of what genetics can tell us about human origins and migrations, this book could have been half as long. The distractions, such as racism, linguistics, resentment and fear of some groups towards genetic research, and the peculiar chapter on Hawaii, could have been condensed in one chapter or even eliminated. Also, having read several books on the same topic, I find it interesting that all of them begin with the genes of the modern proto-humans out of Africa and examine the changes and mutations from that point. I am curious to know something about the genetic differences between humans and our "alleged" nearest relatives, or is that too controversial?
