In Guts she charts how our ancestors hunt for food has driven the shape of our face, the size of our brain and even the way we attract the opposite sex.
And in Brains Alice explores how living till old age and learning from another has shaped our large clever brain - and looks at why we are the only one of our kind still living today."
