Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Winner of the Pulitzer Prize

In this groundbreaking work, evolutionary biologist Jared Diamond stunningly dismantles racially based theories of human history by revealing the environmental factors actually responsible for history's broadest patterns. It is a story that spans 13,000 years of human history, beginning when Stone Age hunter-gatherers constituted the entire human population. Guns, Germs, and Steel is a world history that really is a history of all the world's peoples, a unified narrative of human life.

Synopsis:

- The CD version of Guns, Germs, and Steel has sold over 16,000 copies to date

- Reader Grover Gardner has been named a "Golden Voice" by AudioFile Magazine
