Left behind is a tangle of new mysteries, not just in Europe but all over the Old World. The key to unraveling them lies with the Neandertals. James Shreeve is the author of "The Neandertal Enigma: Solving the Mystery of Modern Human Origin, "and coauthor of "Lucy's Child: The Discovery of a Human Ancestor.

Enigma Variations"" might be a better title to this compendium of conjectures on the where, when, and why of human origins. Seasoned science writer Shreeve, who earlier collaborated with Donald Johanson (Lucy's Child, 1989), has trekked to remote sites in Zaire and South Africa, the Middle East, Eastern Europe, France-wherever vestiges of oldest, older, and modern humans have been found-to talk to the finders, view the fossils and artifacts, and contribute his own ideas on the disputes. Shreeve champions the idea that the Neanderthals were a separate species who neither mated with, nor were wiped out by, the Cro-Magnons or other coexisting modern types.

Great insight into the origins and progressions of man. More new findings every day. I found out that I was in the 99% for Neanderthal DNA (via 23andme) which was what drove my interest to read the book. Ultimately, we're all crossed up mutts of various evolutionary branches coming from Africa. But the interesting part for me has been to trace some of my arthritis afflictions to HLBA27 gene which was inherited from Neanderthals. Great fun. Recommended.

While a bit dated in its "facts" and information - it was published in 1995 and some important dates have since been moved - Shreeve writes well and takes on concepts and questions that will never be dated. He understands the material and reads like a close observer rather than a science reporter.

Although a bit dated (1996), the information seems accurate to that date and is fascinating to read. The author interviewed a seemingly unending number of famous anthropologists, went to many of their field sites, examined the crucial fossils, and has woven the enormous amount of factual information into the plot twists worthy of a novel.

Scream_I LOVE YOU
This is a somewhat dated buy interesting book. For anyone interested in Paleolithic history, I think it's sort of must-have information. Glad that I purchased it.

This is a great book to get you started on more serious writing about paleoanthropology. Shreeve gives consideration to many theories without taking sides. His writing is clear & easy-going. I would have loved more illustrations & maps.

Terrific book, an even better bibliography, am very pleased with my purchase.
I received this book quickly and it is in excellent condition, not to mention I love it! James Shreeve explains complex scientific ideas well, and he is entertaining and funny. I highly recommend this book to anyone interested in the modern scientific state of the Neandertals.
