Guns, Germs and Steel

Pretty cool. Worldhum picks up on the
fact that National Geographic is running a series based
on the Pulitzer-winning book by Jared Diamond Guns, Germs and Steel. You knew this was coming. GG&S was one of the
few science books of the last few years that people actually have read. I enjoyed it immensely, although there were
times when I thought the author was trying to be too nice. Perhaps a bit politically-correct. But it is a fine
read.  The book attempts to explain why certain societies have been “successful” while other have not. 
Presumably the series will do the same. I’ll watch.
