You can check this thread for some previous discussion: Recommended reading?

A couple mentioned in that thread I enjoyed and recommend:

The Third Chimpanzee by Jared Diamond
Really interesting read on human evolution, especially aspects dealing with sexuality. Some crossover with his other books, Why is Sex Fun (great book, also on topic!) and Guns Germs and Steel.

Clan of the Cave Bear by Jean M. Auel
It's fiction, so perhaps not what you are looking for, but is a really great story! It's an immersive book and I feel having read it provides a great backdrop to fill in the details when playing Neanderthal. Helps me get into the theme so much more to have read this story. Note: I do not recommend any of the other books in this series, just the first.

The February 2015 edition of Scientific American features a nice article, "Inside the Meandertal Mind".

There is also a great documentary on Netflix called "Decoding Neanderthal".

Thanks all. I think I'm going to start with The Third Chimpanzee. I also found one on my own that looks interesting:

Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind by Yuval Noah Harari.

I was leaning toward Sapiens since it is much recent (2015 vs 1992), and also available on the Kindle.
