Reprint. Originally published: London: Oneworld, 2014.

The Third Chimpanzee was first published in 1991 and has been in print ever since.

This new, illustrated edition is aimed at a young readership.

In it, Jared Diamond explores what makes us human and poses fascinating questions. If we share more than 98% of our DNA with chimpanzees, how is it that we can write, read, talk, build telescopes and bombs, while we put our speechless and bomb-less close relatives in cages and zoos?What can woodpeckers teach us about spacecraft?Is genocide a human invention?Why does extinction matter?Why are we destroying the natural resources on which we depend for survival?What hope is there for future generations?Not only is The Third Chimpanzee a mind-boggling survey of how we came to be, but it is also a plea to the next generation to "make better decisions than their parents and get us out of the mess we're in."
