The proper sense of time, the author argues, is one which allows us to appreciate the world in general and perceive what we are doing to it. Tudge (former Features Editor of "New Scientist") keeps his eye firmly on the processes that formed humankind and that still affect our lives.

The Day Before Yesterday Summary

The Day Before Yesterday: Five Million Years of Human History by Colin Tudge

The Pleistocene era (starting about 2. 5 million years ago) made the earth what it is today, saw the origins of most of the big animals that now walk on it - including ourselves. It was the heyday of the mammals. By looking at history over millions of years, Tudge is able to show how deep and powerful forces like ice, flood and fire shaped our environment, and how humanity was shaped and conditioned by that environment. If we are to survive another million years we must UNLEARN most of what made us so good at dominating the Pleistocene world. A novel perspective on human history, THE DAY BEFORE YESTERDAY is also a wonderful account of some of the most beautiful animals the world has ever seen.
