A Brief History of Everyone Who Ever Lived PDF-National Book Critics Circle Award—2017 Nonfiction Finalist
“Nothing less than a tour de force—a heady amalgam of science, history, a little bit of anthropology and plenty of nuanced, captivating storytelling.”—The New York Times Book Review, Editor’s Choice
A National Geographic Best Book of 2017
In our unique genomes, every one of us carries the story of our species—births, deaths, disease, war, famine, migration, and a lot of sex. But those stories have always been locked away—until now. Who are our ancestors? Where did they come from? Geneticists have suddenly become historians, and the hard evidence in our DNA has blown the lid off what we thought we knew. Acclaimed science writer Adam Rutherford explains exactly how genomics is completely rewriting the human story—from 100,000 years ago to the present.

Hello, I’m Dr Adam Rutherford, a science writer and broadcaster. I studied genetics at University College London, and during my PhD on the developing eye at the Institute of Child Health at Great Ormond St Hospital, I was part of a team that identified the first genetic cause of a form of childhood blindness. Since then, I worked as an editor at the journal Nature, and have written several books; my first book, CREATION, on the origin of life and synthetic biology, was shortlisted for the Wellcome Trust Prize.
On radio, I present BBC Radio 4’s weekly programme Inside Science, and with Dr. Hannah Fry, the Curious Cases of Rutherford and Fry. I’ve also written and presented documentaries on subjects ranging from the history of sex, the evolution of morality, to the MMR-Autism scandal.
I’ve written and presented several award winning television documentaries, including The Cell (2009), The Gene Code (2011), the Beauty of Anatomy (2014), and Playing God, on the rise of synthetic biology for the BBC’s long-running science series Horizon. I’ve also appeared on programmes including James Cameron’s The Story of Science Fiction (2018), University Challenge (2016).
I’ve worked on a number of films as a scientific consultant too, including Annihilation (dir. Alex Garland, 2018), Ex Machina (dir. Alex Garland, 2015), Life (dir. Daniel Espinosa, 2016)

Sigmund Roseth “Well written and readable story of the gene and the scientific research that has lead to our understanding of our genetic history up to the very recent breakthroughs of DNA sequencing. Some parts get a bit tedious and detailed; such as his list of letters in gene sequencing (pages 281 – 283); but it can be skipped without missing the main story..There is also quite a bit if personal history and information that adds little to the main points; and he tends to be a bit repetitive;. with the same information appearing in various chapters.
He has a section on the science of inheritance, in particular if violence is an inherited trait, ; and uses mass-murder-shooter Adam Lanza as one example; but discount genetic inheritance as a direct consequence; though temperament and irascibility is inherited to a degree. That does not mean that such a child will develop into a murderer, or even a criminal. He makes a good point on page 323 that there would no shootings if they didn’t have guns.”
