- DescriptionAre humans still subject to the forces of evolution? An evolutionary biologist provides surprising insights into the future of Homo sapiens In this intriguing book, evolutionary biologist Scott Solomon draws on the explosion of discoveries in recent years to examine the future evolution of our species. Combining kwledge of our past with current trends, Solomon offers convincing evidence that evolutionary forces still affect us today.

Solomon presents an entertaining and accessible review of the latest research on human evolution in modern times, drawing on fields from gemics to medicine and the study of our microbiome. Surprising insights, on topics ranging from the rise of online dating and Cesarean sections to the spread of diseases such as HIV and Ebola, suggest that we are entering a new phase in human evolutionary history-one that makes the future less predictable and more interesting than ever before.
