In this fascinating, provocative, passionate, funny, endlessly entertaining work, renowned Pulitzer Prize-winning author and Skeptic contributor Jared Diamond explores how the extraordinary human animal, in a remarkably short time, developed the capacity to rule the world... and the means to irrevocably destroy it.

We share 98 percent of our genes with chimpanzees. Yet humans are the dominant species on the planet, while chimps remain animals concerned primarily 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?

The Third Chimpanzee is a tour de force, an iconoclastic, compelling, sometimes alarming look at the unique and marvelous creature that is the human animal.

  • The evolution of human sexuality and the science of adultery.
  • How we pick our mates and sex partners.
  • Why do we grow old and die?
  • The animal origins of art.
  • Why do we smoke, drink, and use dangerous drugs
  • The golden age that never was.
