    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"
    "Bueller Bueller Bueller....."

    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I was so excited to get this book, but it is just so dry. The concept was fantastic, but it really gets into the minutiae. This book would be great for history buffs. I would also suggest getting the abridged version


    What was most disappointing about Jared Diamond’s story?

    The length of time it takes to get to the meat of the story and the tone of the speakers voice


    How could the performance have been better?

    Get quicker to the punch


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disappointment
