Read's like a doctoral thesis. So redundant that one wonders if the author was being paid by the word.
This is not the easiest read in the world, but definately offers fascinating material for thought.
Interesting arguments, presented in a very clear and matter-of-fact way. Was not a fan of the prose however. Very dry, chapters did not really seem to flow together. Given such a gripping topic, would have expected a bit more page "turn-ability".
very interesting theories on causation in History. Takes some thinking but really interesting
You will never look at the world around you in the same way after reading this book. It gives some interesting answers as to how different cultures where shaped depending upon where they were located and and the food that was available.
