Guns, Germs, & Steel: The Fates of Human Societies by Jared Diamond won the Pulitzer Prize for the first edition, which was published in 1997. Over 13,000 years of human history are explored in order to explain why societies around the world evolved differently from each other and how those differences led to the conquest of particular groups at the hands of others. This companion to Guns, Germs, & Steelincludes an overview of the book, important people, key takeaways, analysis of key takeaways, and much more.

Readers voice is so monotone and robotic sounding it makes a very interesting subject sleep-inducing and feel like a university lecture. FLash books much better.

Please note: this is a book summary of Homo Deus: A Brief History of Tomorrow and not the original book. Yuval Noah Harari, author of the critically-acclaimed New York Times best-seller and international phenomenon Sapiens, returns with an equally original, compelling, and provocative book, turning his focus toward humanity's future, and our quest to upgrade humans into gods.
