Jared Diamond

Event Phone: Louise Davey louise@ramsayinc.com

Have lunch with Jared Diamond, “one of the deepest thinkers of our time.”

In his mega-bestsellers, Guns, Germs and Steel, and CollapseJared Diamond transformed our understanding of what makes civilizations rise and fall.

Now, in his third book in this monumental trilogy, he unearths how successful nations recover from crises via a coping mechanism more often associated with people recovering from personal crises.

Bill Gates calls Upheaval “riveting and illuminating.” Yuval Noah Harari says it’s “a riveting and illuminating tour of how nations deal with crises.” And Michael Shermer claims that “Jared Diamond is one of the deepest thinkers and most authoritative writers of our time — arguably of all time…No scientist has ever won the Nobel Prize for literature. Jared Diamond should be the first.”

Jared Diamond will discuss Upheaval at a RamsayTalks luncheon on Thursday, May 14th.

Please join us to hear this global figure on issues of existential importance to us all.
