‘A book of big questions, and big answers’ Yuval Noah Harari, bestselling author of Sapiens Why has human history unfolded so differently across the globe? And what can it teach us about our current crisis?

An ambitious synthesis of history, biology, ecology and linguistics, Guns, Germs and Steel is a ground-breaking and humane work of popular science that can provide expert insight into our modern world. **WINNER OF THE PULITZER PRIZE** **Over One Million Copies Sold**
