Interesting in parts but not in others...

From the comparative details of testes size in humans and their closest evolutionary relatives to unique abilities of humans to create and destroy things this book is a very broad and detailed look at the evolution of humans - some aspects are quite interesting but others really are not.

Other aspects, particularly related to the advances in genetics, make this book seem a little dated.

Overall it is pretty interesting but it doesn’t really compare to Guns, Germs and Steel.
