  • Seriously, what a great take on civilization!

    Jared Diamond is a luminary. Say what you will about the present day, this book offers such a fantastic telling of how we got to where we are now. Told through anthropological evidence and the genius of Jared Diamond's perspective, GG&S is a splendid ride through modern man's history. The book covers early man's nomadic days all the way through the industrial revolution and everything in between. 5 out of 5!
