Wood, Pennsylvania State University "... will interest anthropologists, demographers, and human biologists because of its methods... and its implications for hunter-gatherer existence, once prevalent but rapidly disappearing in the late 20th century." Science "...a quantitative, narrow, clear study, with remarkable data and long sequences of photographs of individuals over the life span." Scientific American
