More than 98 % of human genes are shared with two species of chimpanzee. The 'third' chimpanzee is man.

Jared Diamond surveys our life-cycle, culture, sexuality and destructive urges both towards ourselves and the planet to explore the ways in which we are uniquely human yet still influenced by our animal origins.
