Lone Survivors: How We Came to Be the Only Humans on Earth

Lone Survivors: How We Came to Be the Only Humans on Earth - Chris Stringer This book jumps around a lot and doesn't really have follow a coherent path. Paragraphs don't follow on from one paragraph to another, never mind chapters. The book is also rather limited in that it discusses modern people and neanderthals in rather vague terms. The book wasn't overly technical but it presented information in such a vague and disassociated manner that it made things rather confusing. Too much speculation, not enough facts.

I got the impression that the author's pet theory was the out of Africa hypothesis and he was going to cherry pick data to suit his theory. The author continually bashes the multi-regional hypothesis without actually providing any detailed information on this (or any of the other) hypotheses or providing information on why he considers it wrong. Even if the one hypothesis is completely wrong, I would still like to know more details about it and why it is considered inaccurate.

I may have missed something with all the jumping around, but I still have no idea "how we came to be the only humans on earth".
