520    Modern humans have come a long way in the seventy thousand
       years they've walked the earth. Art, science, culture, 
       trade -- on the evolutionary food chain, we're true 
       winners. But it hasn't always been smooth sailing, and 
       sometimes -- just occasionally -- we've managed to truly 
       f*ck things up. Weaving together history, science, 
       politics and pop culture, Phillips offers a panoramic 
       exploration of humankind in all its glory, or lack 
       thereof. From Lucy, our first ancestor, who fell out of a 
       tree and died, to General Zhou Shou of China, who stored 
       gunpowder in his palace before a lantern festival, to the 
       Austrian army attacking itself one drunken night, to the 
       most spectacular fails of the present day, this book 
       reveals how even the most mundane mistakes can shift the 
       course of civilization as we know it.
