Spellbounding

One of the best, if not the best books I have read until now. Taught me so much on evolution, it is entertaining and educative at the same time. The reasoning and the depth given to each detail is very good. Evolution, roots of agriculture, writing, technology development is exceptionally told. Explained very lucidly this book is a must for every person interested in History, Science, and Geography.
Thank you for writing this book.

Mind boggling ..

I will not overwhelm with a plethora of insights presented in this book. However , the only thing that marks this book outstanding is its scientific attitude towards describing historical progression in broad brush strokes. In nearly 400 pages Dr. Diamond tried to hypothesize greatest trends in human civilization (in nearly last 13k years), and in his way fission-ed Agriculture , Zoology, Environmental science, paleontology, anthropology , archaeology and numerous scientific studies to interpret history. The hypothesis's made , are so deep rooted that towards the end of the book one can guess …

Scientific, Factful and completely gripping.

The author takes us through a journey of times and describes the fates of different human societies in a scientific, factful and yet easy to understand manner.

A must read book for anyone interested in history of human societies, cultural imbalances or anthropology.

I would also recommend this book to someone who is interested in knowing the origin and difference of economies in various parts of the world.

Superb book!

One of the rare books where the author keeps asking the question why till you arrive at a point where you cannot ask that question anymore - truly scientific approach. Starts off as a dreary, slow read, but becomes immensely interesting as you get deeper into it. Wonderful book!

PS: This doesn't mention India, so don't be disappointed by that.

An eye-opener!

This book is simply superb in its ability to bring across a new perspective on the way we see the world. It will shatter those long term notions that we all had about some human races being more modern than the others. A brilliant combination of geography biology evolutionary science. Go for it!

Rigorous Explanation of Historical Unfolding

Jared makes an scientist like case for explaining historical reasons for how/why things have shaped up differently for different people on different continents.
Mildly repetative( less than 10%), but the rigour and logic in arguments is pervasive even though dealing with a topic falling under "History" category.
In the end he even makes a case to consider History as a Social "Science".
The book has in store some surprises, if you need to know where bananas came from, or when did people start farming in Australia, or how Nelson Mandela originally does not belong to SAF

A great read!

This is a great book for anyone who is interested to know more about the history of the human civilization. I'm still half way through the book, and I have thoroughly enjoyed it so far. Jared Diamond has meticulously collected evidence to support his ideas and concepts. Personally, the best thing I have liked is the information I get about our past. For eg, "Why Native Americans settled much after Eurasians?", "How the decision to farm or to remain hunters affected the future of a society?" and so on.

I definitely recommend this book.
