About the Author:

Dean Falk is professor of anthropology at Florida State University and honorary professor of human biology at the University of Vienna. Since receiving her Ph.D. in biological anthropology from the University of Michigan in 1976, her research has focused on early hominids, brain evolution, comparative neuroanatomy, and cognitive evolution (including language origins). Research on cranial blood flow and australopithecine endocasts led Falk to develop the "radiator theory" of brain evolution and to question the conventional interpretations of certain fossils. Falk is the author of Braindance: New Discoveries About Human Origins and Brain Evolution.

Review:

Academically first-rate as well as a bestseller....I am more convinced than ever of the need for Dean's book. -- Jay R. Kaplan, Wake Forest University

Falk's text is written in a highly effective and engaging style. It appears very well-organized and does a good job of covering many aspects of primate biology. -- John C. Mitani, University of Michigan
