Description of Humans by Tom Phillips PDF
The “Humans: A Brief History of How We F*cked It All Up” is the combination of humour, sarcasm, and academic. Tom Phillips is the author of this book. This book is just what it purports to be, a brief, highly readable and thought-provoking chronicle of how thousands of years of human trial and mostly error have led us to the planet-threatening situation we find ourselves in today. With skill and humor, author Tom Phillips fills his book with historical and modern-day facts, amusing anecdotes and cogent observations on the human condition that are sure to have readers chuckling and nodding their heads in agreement. At a high level, after all, the book is only a little over 250 pages long, he dissects virtually the entire history of the human race, starting 3.2 million years ago when Lucy our distant Australopithecus afarensis ancestor, fell out of a tree and died.
It’s been all downhill from there. He shows how some of the best-laid plans to improve humans’ lot in life over the years, such as cultivating food crops and domesticating animals, have often backfired, sometimes spectacularly, because of men’s hard-wired inability to consider what the Law of Unintended Consequences not to mention Murphy’s Law might do to their grandiose schemes. Those of a certain political leaning probably won’t touch this book with a barge pole, while those leaning the opposite way will likely embrace it as a compendium of things they’ve been saying for years. If you are of the latter persuasion, you will enjoy “Humans: A Brief History of How We F*cked It All Up” immensely.
