Being plagued by insomnia might have its perks after all, otherwise I probably wouldn’t have gotten my hands on that huge history book torrent. And this one is worth it.
History book by Ian Morris. Different perspective on history that might trigger a few “figured that out already” moments for Civilization players. 😉 Especially interesting because things are slightly starting to shift again on the globe. Time to put that in perspective.
In a way a big data approach to history minus fancy graphs, but maybe someone gets around to it. *hint hint*
Interestingly, the background of the author underlines my theory that specialists alone don’t quite make the soup on their own and isolated views tend to be.. isolated.
