Tonight is the first part of a three part PBS series on Guns, Germs and Steel.
Guns, Germs, and Steel is an artful, informative, and delightful book, full of surprises… there is nothing like a radically new angle of vision for bringing out unsuspected dimensions of a subject, and that is what Jared Diamond has done.” – William H. McNeill, The New York Review of Books
“Diamond has written a book of remarkable scope . . . one of the most important and readable works on the human past published in recent years.”— Colin Renfrew, Nature
“The scope and explanatory power of this book are astounding.”— The New Yorker
