    "Guns, Germs, and Steel is a colorful and entertaining story of a few hard elements that might have had a greater hand at shaping the world than we realized. I was very pleased at how the author kept the huge concepts constrained to smaller and concise sentences that didn't drag on and make it hard to follow."

    "Diamond’s analysis is fascinating and thorough, although his background as an evolutionary biologist clearly influenced what factors he found important in human history. He skims over or does not mention numerous other facets, most importantly cultural interactions and the roles of imperialism, post-colonialism, capitalism, rationalism, and many others. It also feels somewhat deterministic – as if according to Diamond, Eurasian dominance was inevitable."
