really liked it

I picked this up on a recommendation from a podcast about Apple (go figure). That said, Chivers clearly knows his topic and does a good job of providing lots of historical context around his main thesis. It's definitely not for the faint of heart though. Several sections go into immense detail into the effects of various weapons on living tissue that can be a little hard to stomach. But, if you're interested in geo-politics, this book is certainly a unique viewpoint.
