From where did the world appear?
Is the creation story true?
Why is Man the way he is?

Would there be other species after you and me?
Religion and politics: What is their origin? And why do they rule our world so strongly?
Oh well! You might be in for a shocker! If you were told today that you come from a lineage of animals, and probably have some apes and chimpanzees as long-lost cousins, what would you think?

All of these and many more are the topics explored in Sapiens.
