Pilgrim Festivals - The festival which occurs in Nisannamely Pesachis considered the first of the three pilgrimage festivals: PesachShavuotand Succoth. This period is used to complete an oath.
Since I got it before the publication day, I made sure to clear enough days in reading "schedule" so I could post my review the day the book was officially out.
Turned out I didn't set aside enough time, this reading took me more than a month instead of a usual week for pages. I was anticipating eagerly. Science and scientists desperately need that popularization element. We all need books tha I won a copy of this book through the Goodreads Giveaways and was so looking forward to read it!
We all need books that explain current research, make it a part of the paradigm the society lives in, inspire people to ask questions and seek answers. Unfortunately, lame attempts at all these things hurt the science more than no attempts at all.
My disenchantment started with a feeling that I'm reading a scientific paper - as if I don't read enough of them - and not a good paper at that. The same style, the same jumping thoughts and sloppy writing characteristic of bad papers that nobody wants to read, but everyone in the field has to, because ten different reasons here.
After page 25, where "the stereoscope expanded [research possibilities] in the same way that telescopes and microscopes expanded the visual possibilities for other sciences centuries before", my reading slowed down significantly.
Because no, it didn't. The CT scan expanded possibilities for paleoanthropology the same way microscopes did, not stereoscopes. Could the author really not see the difference? Should I read it? By the end of chapter One, I resorted to highlighting, which I never do with books, only with papers.
The last three pages of this chapter in my advanced copy was a jumble of several sentences repeated over and over again at least 4 times in different order. Very surprised, I decided to wait for the release date and continued reading the hard cover.
At least this mess at the end of the Old Man chapter was fixed, which is a huge relief. The part I liked best was a heroic saga "Australopithecus" by Dr. Walet Rose on the page It is simply the best part of the book. Can you imagine my disappointment, when the reference given at the end turned out to be "Raymond Dart Archive", which basically means that there is no way I can read the whole saga?
I have lots of remarks about the content of this book, thanks to "scientific paper mode" of reading - I kept notes, highlighted, and wrote on margins, but each one of them is small and insignificant, untill you see them all together. The overall conclusion is depressing.
A dissertation published as a book? It's written in worst possible way for the genre. The author gives bits and pieces. The moment writing turns into a story and becomes interesting, she changes the topic and keeps jumping the whole book.
She doesn't give any conclusions, just piles up little facts in a way that suggests she waits for the reader to make the "right" conclusion, the one she has in mind. But the piled facts are too small to be interesting and the whole pile is not comprehensive enough to draw any conclusions.
They are just hanging there, a messy pile of facts.
I'm very upset after reading this book, but give it three stars nevertheless, for the effort of popularizing paleoanthropology.BibMe Free Bibliography & Citation Maker - MLA, APA, Chicago, Harvard.

An intron is any nucleotide sequence within a gene that is removed by RNA splicing during maturation of the final RNA product.
The word intron is derived from the term intragenic region, i.e. a region inside a gene. The term intron refers to both the DNA sequence within a gene and the corresponding sequence in RNA transcripts.

Each view is immediately followed by a response from a proponent of evolution (EVO).
