really liked it

Warning: this may sound pedantic.
This book ends with tying the following bertrand russel quote to the threat posed by climate change:

"After ages during which the earth produced harmless trilobites and butterflies, evolution progressed to the point at which it generated Neros, Genghis Khans, and Hitlers. This, however, is a passing nightmare; in time the earth will become again incapable of supporting life, and peace will return."

Because of this book I once carved this quote into a wall of a hostel in Guatemala.
