A good read overall. Due to working hours it took me over a month to finish. The book bases itself on histories of nations and how these countries end up to where they are not by accident but rather by a series of choice or policies taken up by their so-called leader.

It has strengthened my belief that it is not the religion itself that curses the country into an undeveloped state but rather the manipulation of those that have vested interest in keeping the status quo. Thus in a way it solidifies my stand that religion should be kept out of politics/government lest it be mis-used by the powers that be.
