This short, 105-page book uses the scientific literature to show that there is no viable evidence to support the claim that mankind (Homo sapiens) descended from an ape-like ancestor.  With hundreds of references, this book will satisfy the scientific-minded reader, yet it will also appeal to those seeking an introductory narrative about the complicated topic of the fossil evidence for human evolution.   The book contains photos of many claimed hominins and is a great resource for parents, teachers, and clergy. It is also ideal for group studies and will help develop critical thinking skills.  The book’s material consists largely of the three chapters from The Fall of Darwin’s Last Icon, but is much shorter than that work because it does not include the history of philosophy material leading to the Cartesian-Darwinian Narrative.
