Review quote

"In this concise and well-written work, Wells "(The Journey of Man)" provides an accessible introduction to genetic anthropology, the study of human history using genetic evidence. It is a remarkable journey that will appeal to readers of all backgrounds interested in exploring the science and research behind human evolution." "Publishers Weekly" "Wells ends the book with an invitation to take part in the project... This is a rare chance to not only learn about ourselves, but to contribute in a worldwide scientific experiment." "Bookpage" "From the Trade Paperback edition.""
