Do you know the publisher of "Deep Ancestry: Inside The Genographic Project" by Spencer Wells?
It intrigues my curiosity and Ancestry is useless for reviews.

To find the publisher of a current book in print, you can go to amazon.ca. Search for the title, then when you've got the full record up for the item, scroll down to "Product Details". You can find the publisher, publication date and ISBN there.
