More than 98 percent of human genes are shared with two species of chimpanzee. The 'third' chimpanzee is man.

About the Author:

Jared Diamond is the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Guns, Germs, and Steel, which was named one of TIME's best non-fiction books of all time, the number one international bestseller Collapse and most recently The World UntilYesterday. A professor of geography at UCLA and noted polymath, Diamond's work has been influential in the fields of anthropology, biology, ornithology, ecology and history, among others.

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 *
