If you think you are you, think again. Primate Change is a wide-ranging, polemical look at how and why the human body has changed since humankind first got up on two feet. Spanning the entirety of human history - from primate to transhuman - Vybarr Cregan-Reid's book investigates where we came from, who we are today and how modern technology will change us beyond recognition.

This is a fascinating listen which explores the problems resulting from the mismatch between our bodies and the modern world we live in. The book is very well researched and the author is able to present complex information in an accessible way, resulting in an absorbing narrative. I was shocked by some of the statistics the author uncovers, such as the massive increases in things like allergies and short sightedness in a relatively small period of time. The ‘turning back’ sections are great - giving advice on how to undo/prevent these problems.
