Maybe brain size and activity which has given rise to human cultures and may end all life on earth. The first part is the achievement.

Terrific book from Lord Robert Winston called Bad Ideas goes over all critical human discoveries, and their good and bad aspects.
I will check this out too!

My book around this topic (I hesitate to say 'recommend' because I imagine it gets polarizing reviews, I very much connected with it though) is The Ascent of Humanity: Civilization and the Human Sense of Self by Charles Eisenstein.
