Well made, well researched, up to date, no-nonsense book that presents ideas our ancestors came with and realized over the last 3 million years (with a big focus on the last 10000 years).

Fantastic bedside book for the anthropology-minded reader, reads well in bursts, as each "invention" reads on its own, presented in relative historical order.
