Have you ever wondered how a person from the 1960s would feel if he was somehow transported to the year 2022? Evolution Ended by J.J. Jerome takes a deep dive into how our entire evolutionary makeup has shifted drastically since the 60s. Although technology has made it possible for us to survive even without the necessary skills, it has also complicated other aspects of our lives. The nuclear family is in decline, while people's sexual and physical beauty preferences have gone through a significant change. With time, the role of the alpha is no longer to be the best hunter or the sole breadwinner, as the omega has become the new introverted leader. As technological developments threaten to bypass the evolution of our brains, is humanity somehow heading toward destruction?

J.J. Jerome gives readers a lot to consider with this captivating work. Evolution Ended is a riveting read that encapsulates the socio-political, physical, and behavioral differences between humans of the 21st century and those of the past. But the real question he poses is, "are all these changes making people the best they can be or only increasing the rate of humanity's demise?" Jerome cites examples of well-known personalities to solidify his arguments and presents them in a way that is well-researched, fact-based, and completely unbiased. The writing style is accessible, and readers will find it easy to grasp the issues that the author discusses. I found this book to be a fascinating read. Highly recommended.

When we talk about the concept of evolution, the first thing that comes to mind is survival of the fittest, a rigorous process where the herd is thinned and the survivors are the best possible specimens of that species. This utopian ideal tended to go hand in hand with growth, development, and technological advancement. Over the last millennium, something unusual has replaced that. What was expected to be an inconvenient blip in the circle of life has become the norm and now we must face the painful truth. We must accept the reality that the same technological advances that we believed all along would lead us into a brave new era of the Supermen are instead destroying us. J.J. Jerome shows us how our actions as a race have taken humanity from the top of the food chain to staring into the abyss of almost certain extinction. Find out more in his new book titled Evolution Ended.

J.J. Jerome's research is exhaustive. There are numerous examples explaining the evolutionary process. The sentences are short and blunt. The extensive detailing that goes into this book is stunning, and the numbers, the dates, and the data are neatly arranged for the reader to draw their conclusions. Using pop culture hits such as Game of Thrones to support his points is a masterstroke and his detailed analyses of the events leading up to and after the US Presidential elections is one of a kind. Evolution Ended is a must-read. The end of civilization as we know it may be much closer than we think.

Evolution Ended: The Next Stage of American Society by J. J. Jerome is a fascinating book concerning the evolution of the human species, or how humans have ended their evolution. But surely, humans are evolving, right? Just look at the advances in technology. According to Jerome, this is unfortunately the crux of the problem. With the developments in technology, society has changed so much that humans may no longer be evolving. Jerome explores the profound changes in society since the 1960s, which he considers may have been the peak of human evolution. The discussions cover many topics including the human brain, family, children, tribe, nations, war, business, technology, media, politics, and religion.

While we are so involved in our everyday lives, we may have overlooked the possibility that we are not evolving as a species. In Evolution Ended, J.J. Jerome points out that the evolution of the human species may already have stalled. I enjoyed his discussion on the human brain. According to Jerome, it is the brain that enables humans to be at the apex of life forms on planet Earth. I also found his analysis of how technology has changed the family unit fascinating. With the advances in technology, a single person can rear a child and form a family. As a consequence, 40% of American children are born to unmarried mothers and with a 44% divorce rate of those who are married, single-parent families are becoming the rule rather than the exception - an important insight! A recommended read for those who are interested in the current status of human evolution.
