"That the apes, and especially the orang, chimpanzee and gorilla, come very close to man in their organisation, much nearer than to any other animal, is a well known fact, disputed by nobody. Looking at the matter from the point of view of organisation alone, no one probably would ever have disputed the view of Linnaeus, that man should be placed, merely as a peculiar species, at the head of the mammalia and of those apes. Both shew, in all their organs, so close an affinity, that the most exact anatomical investigation is needed in order to demonstrate those differences which really exist. So it is with the brains. The brains of man, the orang, the chimpanzee, the gorilla, in spite of all the important differences which they present, come very close to one another."


* Great comparison between homo sapiens and other genuses of apes

* Good discussion of how embryology perfectly supports evolution

* Some insight on how men and other apes evolved

* Lots of quotes from other experts in their respective fields


* Extremely complicated

* Advanced terminology not fit for laymen

* Many quotes are quoted in their original language with no translation

"So far as cerebral structure goes, therefore, it is clear that man differs less from the chimpanzee or the orang, than these do even from the monkeys, and that the difference between the brain of the chimpanzee and of man is almost insignificant when compared with that between the chimpanzee brain and that of a Lemur."

This book succeeds in what it was written to do: show the remarkable similarities, particular in the anatomy of the brain, between the apes, including mankind. I came away with a lot of knew information, such as the fact that there is more difference in the brain of a chimp and a lemur than that of a man and a chimp. Huxley goes into meticulous detail about the similarities of countless structures of the brain, among other organs.

There is also a nice discussion about embryology that I took a lot away from. I had always heard that embryology is one of the strongest evidences for evolution, but I never was exactly sure how. Huxley demonstrates this by explaining how organisms, in their developmental stages, exhibit the attributes of their evolutionary ancestors, until finally they develop into their own unique species.

My biggest gripe with the book is how complicated it is. This is not to say that it is a fault with the book itself, since it was clearly written for other academics on the field and not for the laymen, but it does take away enjoyment when you can't understand half of what is said. For example, unless you're a neuroscientist, you're very unlikely to know what a majority of the terms used mean. Even the dictionary built into my Kindle didn't have a definition for a lot of them. Despite this, when familiar terms are used, the book is a success.

"It is important to remark that, whether Gratiolet was right or wrong in his hypothesis respecting the relative order of appearance of the temporal and frontal sulci, the fact remains; that before either temporal or frontal sulci, appear, the foetal brain of man presents characters which are found only in the lowest group of the Primates (leaving out the Lemurs); and that this is exactly what we should expect to be the case, if man has resulted from the gradual modification of the same form as that from which the other Primates have sprung."
