We like to think of ourselves as exceptional beings, but are we really any more special than other animals? Humans are the slightest of twigs on

a single family tree that encompasses four billion years, a lot of twists and turns, and a billion species. All of those organisms are rooted in a

single origin, with a common code that underwrites our existence. In this original and entertaining tour of life on Earth, Adam Rutherford explores

how many of the things once considered to be exclusively human are not: we are not the only species that communicates, makes tools, utilises

fire, or has sex for reasons other than to make new versions of ourselves. Evolution has, however, allowed us to develop our culture to a level of

complexity that outstrips any other observed in nature. It tells the story of how we became the creatures we are today, bestowed with the unique

ability to investigate what makes us who we are.
