  • The Third Chimpanzee: The Evolution and Future of the Human Animal

    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?

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    No, this book is boring at times, which makes it seem like a very long book.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    Made it shorter.


    What three words best describe Rob Shapiro’s performance?

    Boring, wordy,


    Could you see The Third Chimpanzee being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    I don't see how it could be a movie, maybe some sort of history channel show.


    Any additional comments?

    This book does have a few good points. But overall it is a very lengthy discussion on diamond's theories. Some of them have a good foundation, some of them have no foundation. In all this is a very tiring book, and it is out of date to boot, which doesn't do it any justice.

    These days, most people assume you need to pay a boatload of money for a quality college education. As a result, students and their parents are willing to go into years of debt and potentially sabotage their financial futures just to get a fancy name on a diploma. But Zac Bissonnette is walking proof that the assumption is not only false, but dangerous.
