Guns, Germs & Steel (A short history of eveyrbody for the last 13,000 years)

Author : Jared Diamond
Genre : Science

There is something about Diamond that makes him the quintessential intellectual (Top 10 Public Intellectuals in multiple surveys). His range of knowledge – molecular physiology, evolutionary biology, biogeography; his depth of scientific evidence to prove or disprove hypotheses; and of course his very interesting writing style and affable persona, all contribute to the lasting impression of his works. Yuval Harari, the famous author of Homo Sapiens, for example, credits Diamond for influencing him.
