"The Fossil Trail" by I. Tattersall is fairly current, even contains a
foot note on A. ramidus (praegens?). It's an excellent read, however some
may caution that he is a "splitter". With all that's been happing these
past few months, though, nothing is current on the subject of hominid
evolution. Tattersall's book does help a lay person such as myself gain
an understanding of all those other species names you see thrown out from
time to time even if you disagree with his analysis.
