    Having done field work in New Guinea for more than 30 years, Jared Diamond presents the geographical and ecological factors that have shaped the modern world. From the viewpoint of an evolutionary biologist, he highlights the broadest movements both literal and conceptual on every continent since the Ice Age, and examines societal advances such as writing, religion, government, and technology.

    Doug says: "Compelling pre-history and emergent history"
    "Great book - Extremely boring reader"
    Overall

    I was very excited to see that G G & S was now available in an unabridged version at audible. I jumped in right away. The book is very interesting but it is hard to follow and on top of this the reader is soporific. It is so monotonous that I was constantly rewinding to re listen. In similar terms, I had previously listened to Bill Bryson’s A Short History of Nearly Everything and the reader was so much enthusiastic and passionate. As I said the book is great, but if you plan to listen it while you drive, pay extra care!
