About this book

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? In this fascinating, provocative, passionate, funny, endlessly entertaining work, renowned Pulitzer Prize-winning author and scientist Jared Diamond explores how the extraordinary human animal, in a remarkably short time, developed the capacity to rule the world . . . and the means to irrevocably destroy it.

Re-issue of the 1993 edition. This book has been adapted for younger readers.
