Not as good a read as previous book and somewhat repetitive. I skipped through much of it.

"I believe that synchronous coordinated song and movement were what created the strongest bonds between early humans, or protohumans, and these allowed for the formation of larger living groups, and eventually of society as we know it." pg.50
