In this incredibly original book, Richard Wrangham states that it was the cooking that caused the extraordinary transformation of our ancestors simian beings to Homo erectusAt the heart of Catching Fire is a new explosive idea: the habit of eating cooked rather than raw food allowed the digestive tract to shrink and the human brain to grow, helped by the structure of human society, and created the men and women of the division of laborLike our ancestors adapted to the use of fire, man emerged as “the kitchen of monkeys”Covering everything from food-labelling and overweight pets to raw faddist foods, Catching Fire offers an original argument about how we arrived at the social, intelligent, and sexual species we are today.”This notion is surprising, fresh and, in the hands of Richard Wrangham, quite convincing.Big, new ideas don’t often come along in the evolution of these days, but it’s one of the most important ones.”-Matt Ridley, author of Genome
