    Another great book from Jared Diamond I found this to be just as engaging as Guns, Germs, and Steel, and also an easier read I find that his books have so much information that it is helpful for me to outline them as I go Here are my favorite bullet points from The Third Chimpanzee Not at all a comprehensive outline, but may be of interest to some people.Chapter 1 Our ancestors diverged from other apes around

    Original review The audience called for an encore and Jared obliged The rewind was not as much fun.Update The Homosexual Chimpanzee However, this book has some great explanations on human sexuality but does not address one which I was not able to find a satisfactory explanation for, evolutionarily speaking Homosexuality The following is an explanatory excerpt from The Extended Phenotype by Richard Dawkins I am adding this her

    If you want to find answers for your questions like the qualitative discrepancies between human and animals, how and why men do stupid things for attracting women, the reasons for being unfaithful among men, evolution of language, the reason for creating artworks by people, please read this book The author shows that such odd behaviors are not just pertaing to humans, but also has root in ancestral interfaces with animals.
