For those of you interested in the background and works of Jared Diamond, here’s a little summary for your interest purloined from our friends at Wikipedia: Jared Mason Diamond is an American geographer, historian, ornithologist, and author best known for his popular science books The Third Chimpanzee; Guns, Germs, and Steel; Collapse, The World Until Yesterday, and Upheaval. And yes, in 1961, he earned his PhD on the membranes in the gallbladder, some suggesting his diverse authorship including on topics such as geography, history and anthropology is on the account of Diamond being a polymath.
