New Zimmer—you know you want it

Carl Zimmer's new book, Smithsonian Intimate Guide to Human Origins (amzn/b&n/abe/pwll), is available, and he has a summary of its contents at The Loom. This should be excellent—Zimmer has a real knack for writing about the evidence for a general audience without diminishing it—and I'm looking forward to getting my hands on a copy. More accessible descriptions about what we know and how we know it are exactly what we need to get out to the public!
