Mr. Diamond provides many examples from each continent, and cites many works from various fields of study. He also provides visuals to help put things into context. Reading over his arguments, I wondered how someone did not reach these conclusions years ago. His points are logical, and seem so self-evident when looking at them as a whole. My reading list grew by over 100 books as a result of Guns, Germs, and Steel. I highly recommend this book to anyone with an interest in culture, economics, technology, or history.
Thank you, Mr. Diamond, for your unique mind and ability to put disparate fields of study together into a cohesive whole.
