Only read the first chapter, but there were no citations and no analysis of *why* China as so innovative. Also, Game of Thrones began dominating my reading life. So. Back to the library.

7.0% "Completely uncited, and so far strict documentation adorned with fawning over how amazingly advance Chinese tech was relative to Western tech with no considering of *why* that was. Not sure if I'll make it all the way through."
