    In the breakthrough spirit of Against the Gods, William Bernstein's The Birth of Plenty has the topical uniqueness and storytelling panache to literally create its own category and reader. Based upon the premise that mankind experienced virtually zero economic growth from the dawn of time until 1820, this provocative, big-picture book identifies the four conditions necessary for sustained economic progress.

    JOSHUA HELMAN, M.D. says: "Entertaining and Educational"
    "Interesting and worth a listen, but not terrific"
    Overall

    This book was quite interesting, but in the end, was not great. It just seemed like it left the subject a bit flat and could have provided more examples and proof of the theory. I also thought some of the stories could have been developed a bit more.
