it was ok
Read in September, 2010

i started it twice but found it much less compelling than Guns Germs and Steel. But Diamond was brillant in GGS so i will eventually read it. John left it here so its a free book on my shelf.

now that i've more or less read it, i have to say it was ok. His idea is important but something was missing.

Drew really all you have to read is the chapter on Easter Island. That was the coolest. The rest of the books is showing different examples of the principles laid out in that chapter. I am not saying,"Don't read it." I am saying, "Read it when you get the chance. There are better uses of your time."
