it was amazing

Diamond picks some really neat case studies. I particularly enjoyed the chapters about the Greenland Norse. What's really nice about this book is how each vignette relates to the central premases that Diamond lays out to help us understand our current ecological situation. Diamond is also very realistic, his not an overly idealistic environmentalist who just chants 'simplify' as a mantra.
