From the Pulitzer Prize winning author of Guns, Germs and Steel

More than 98 % of human genes are shared with two species of chimpanzee. The 'third' chimpanzee is man.

Jared Diamond surveys our life-cycle, culture, sexuality and destructive urges both towards ourselves and the planet to explore the ways in which we are uniquely human yet still influenced by our animal origins.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Eloquent and knowledgeable account of the tiny genetic difference between humans and chimps * Independent *
Some biologists are just scientists; but some truly are thinkers. Jared Diamond is one of the latter. Whatever he applies himself to, his contribution is original and worthwhile -- Colin Tudge
A fascinating portrait with more than enough uncomfortable facts to stop any dinner-party conversation in its tracks - an important book * Financial Times *
Confirms Diamond as an impressive scholar and popularizer-an enjoyable, stimulating and audacious book * Nature *
