    Guns, Germs and Steel: The Fates of Human Societies

    Audiobook CD, Highbridge Company
    2001

    ; 6 Hours on 5 CDs ed. Abridged.

    ISBN: 1565115147
    ISBN-13: 9781565115149

    Winner of the Pulitzer Prize In this groundbreaking work, evolutionary biologist Jared Diamond stunningly dismantles racially based theories of human history by revealing the environmental factors actually responsible for history s broadest patterns. It is a story that spans 13,000 years of human history, beginning when Stone Age hunter-gatherers constituted the entire human population. "Guns, Germs, and Steel" is a world history that really is a history of all the world s peoples, a unified narrative of human life."

The Emperor's New Clothes

by Unlector on Jun 30, 2013

This book has been praised by many (including Bill Gates!), received several awards, and was serialized in PBS.

Details, details, details

Jared Diamond takes you through every conceivable nook and cranny of man's so-called evolution. Far from taking the stance that humans of European decent are smarter or "more advanced" because they're just biologically better than everyone else, he shows us just how we earthlings have advanced because ...
