    Story

    We human beings share 98 percent of our genes with chimpanzees. Yet humans are the dominant species on the planet - having founded civilizations and religions, developed intricate and diverse forms of communication, learned science, built cities, and created breathtaking works of art - while chimps remain animals concerned primarily with the basic necessities of survival. What is it about that two percent difference in DNA that has created such a divergence between evolutionary cousins?

    Story

    A very compelling listen.

    The story sucked me in and I found myself listening much longer than I had meant to several times.

    Fascinating topic that is well researched, backed up with logical thought, and presented in a fashion that is easy for an non expert to understand.

    If you have any interest in evolution and the effects that it had on making who we are now, I would highly suggest this book to you.

    It is the cusp of World War I, and all the European powers are arming up. The Austro-Hungarians and Germans have their Clankers, steam-driven iron machines loaded with guns and ammunition. The British Darwinists employ fabricated animals as their weaponry. The Leviathan is a living airship, the most formidable airbeast in the skies of Europe.

    Story

    I really didn't know what to expect out of this alternative history story. Set at the onset of WWI in a different universe, this book 1 of a series, draws you into the story quickly and keeps you there. The storytelling is fast paced, interesting and gets you to want to listen to the rest of the series. Well worth the time
