's review

really liked it

This isn't quite as engrossing as guns, germs, and steel is, despite the fact that it's about the apocalypse of many a historical society. (Easter Island, the Vikings in Greenland.)

I'd skip past the initial chapter about the mining industry in Montana, so you can get into the book, but make sure you come back to it, as it's important to the overall thesis.

Should be required reading for everyone on the planet -- at least, anyone making decisions about how we're using our resources.
