Emlen compares and contrasts the evolution of animal weaponry such as camouflage, tusks, and antlers with the development of human weapons, including the bow and arrow, body armor, the tank, and the nuclear bomb. Sean Runnette narrates in a warm voice that infuses life into Emlen's anecdotes while projecting authority when explaining the scientific elements of animal and human weaponry. Most importantly, Runnette consistently captures Emlen's awe and curiosity--whether he's exploring the world of elephants, dung beetles, or humans. Runnette's consistent tone clearly ties the book together and helps listeners understand the value in studying animal weaponry to better appreciate human weaponry.
