An ambitious, highly important book. -- James Shreeve
The scope and explanatory power of this book are astounding.
An ambitious, highly important book.--James Shreeve
Diamond has written a book of remarkable scope . . . one of the most important and readable works on the human past published in recent years. --Colin Renfrew
Guns, Germs and Steel lays a foundation for understanding human history, which makes it fascinating in its own right. Because it brilliantly describes how chance advantages can lead to early success in a highly competitive environment, it also offers useful lessons for the business world and for people interested in why technologies succeed. --Bill Gates
A fascinating and extremely important book. That its insights seem so fresh, its facts so novel and arresting, is evidence of how little Americans and, I suspect, most well-educated citizens of the Western world know of the most important forces of human history. --David Brown
Artful, informative, and delightful.... There is nothing like a radically new angle of vision for bringing out unsuspected dimensions of a subject, and that is what Jared Diamond has done. --William H. McNeil
A book of remarkable scope, a history of the world in less than 500 pages which succeeds admirably, where so many others have failed, in analyzing some of the basic workings of culture process.... One of the most important and readable works on the human past published in recent years. --Colin Renfrew
The scope and the explanatory power of this book are astounding.
Fascinating and extremely important... [A] synopsis doesn't do credit to the immense subtlety of this book. --David BrownReseña del editor:
An intriguing study of the rise of civilization argues that human development is not based on race or ethnic differences but rather is linked to biological diversity, discussing the evolution of agriculture, technology, writing, political systems, and religious belief. Reprint.
