it was amazing

This is a great companion piece to Sapiens. While Sapiens gives a fundamentally progressive and hopeful version of the history of mankind, this one takes a bleaker (and funnier) take on events.

Starting with an ape that fell from a tree and entered history, it's a comedy of errors and incompetence that shaped the world as we see it today. The book does not take sides, and it has hilarious and harrowing stories of how kings f*cked up, and how elected officials f*ucked it all up, how scientists f*cked it all up, and how not listening to scientists f*cked it all up...

So, in a nutshell, a very funny story of how we always managed to f*ck things up and most likely always will...
