This book really disappointed me. The topic begs for an answer to the question of why the West triumphed, but it only very superficially addressed that topic. It instead settled for what happened. This is certainly an easier question to answer, and any answer to why it happened is always a bit more subjective, but the why is what makes history come alive, and makes it relevant.
Fascinating story, with good insight into what motivates John Kerry.
