More than 98 percent of human genes are shared with two species of chimpanzee. The 'third' chimpanzee is man. Jared Diamond surveys out life-cycle, culture, sexuality and destructive urges both towards ourselves and the planet to explore the ways in which we are uniquely human yet still influenced by our animal origins.

Review:

"Eloquent and knowledgeable account of the tiny genetic difference between humans and chimps" ( Independent)

"Some biologists are just scientists; but some truly are thinkers. Jared Diamond is one of the latter. Whatever he applies himself to, his contribution is original and worthwhile" (Colin Tudge)

"A fascinating portrait with more than enough uncomfortable facts to stop any dinner-party conversation in its tracks - an important book" ( Financial Times)

"Confirms Diamond as an impressive scholar and popularizer-an enjoyable, stimulating and audacious book" ( Nature)

From the Publisher:

How our animal heritage affects the way we live

Book Description Vintage. 1 Paperback(s), 2002. soft. Book Condition: New. We share 98 percent of our genes with chimpanzees, yet humans are the dominant species on the planet—having founded civilizations and religions, developed intricate forms of communication, built cities, and created breathtaking works of art—while chimps are primarily concerned 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 book, the Pulitzer Prize–winning author of Guns, Germs, and Steel explores how the human animal developed the capacity to rule the world, and the means to destroy it."Wonderful. Jared Diamond conducts his fascinating study of our behavior and origins with a naturalist's eye and a philosopher's cunning."—Diane Ackerman 360. Bookseller Inventory # 64348
