“A heady amalgam of science, history, a little bit of anthropology and plenty of nuanced, captivating storytelling” (The New York Times Book Review), Adam Rutherford’s A Brief History of Everyone Who Ever Lived delves into the ages-spanning story of our species through the field of genomics. A National Geographic Best Book of 2017, it was a nonfiction finalist for the National Book Critics Circle Award. A University College London PhD and science writer for The Guardian, Rutherford has also written and hosted several programs for the BBC, including Inside ScienceThe Cell, and Playing God.
