Summary
Imagine you are a hunter-gatherer some 12,000 years ago. You've got a choice - carry on foraging, or plant a few seeds and move to one of those new-fangled settlements down the valley. What you won't know is that urban life is short and riddled with dozens of new diseases; your children will be shorter and sicklier than you are, they'll be plagued with gum disease, and stand a decent chance of a violent death at the point of a spear. Why would anyone choose this? But choose they did. Why? This is one of the many intriguing questions tackled by Brenna Hassett in this book
