I really like this long style of book review.

Thanks for this review. I admire your patience to wade through the woke nonsense which seems to saturate the whole book. I guess you can call it a 'good book', despite this if you can distinguish the incorrect information from the correct one. Otherwise, this book seems like one that you can't trust.

It's probably simply sunburn, rather than risk of skin cancer, that drives evolution of darker skin. Seems like a minor problem, but so does lactose malabsorption, and lactose tolerance has spready quickly enough.

- Aryan is actually term which that means Indo-Iranian not Indo-European.


- Light hair is indirectly related to Anatolian Farmers. Real factors are Germanic and Finnish ancestry.


- Kossina had some wrong ideas. He thought proto-Indo-european's homeland was in schleswig-holstein.


I know this region is very important for you.



But genetic evidences suggest eastern europe.


- Many people have kind of obsession about skin colour. You can see online right wingers who write ancient greeks, romans or ancient egyptians were like nordic people.


- Immigrants are very bad. It seems there is some exceptions.


Nevertheless you can be happy. Europe is still homogenous place compared to India or Brazil or Africa.


-There is no much difference in pgs. But psychometric variation is large.

* Kenya = 75

*Ghana= 58

* Nigeria = 68

* Igbo majority Enugu city = 85

I enjoyed this very much. I, also, hope someone contacts these authors about mistakes. They may have no choice, as truth in some areas today is considered heretical.
