I enjoyed the national geographic film with the same name. However, the deterministic view and almost anxious way of telling that there are really no differences between people and cultures other than geography and physical environment bored me in the end. Never got through more than 4 hours of listening before giving up
However, I do not hate it so I give it three stars.
Never got to the ending :)
Important ideas put forward in an understandable manner
No. But both me and my future wife got ideas for our life and our research (we are social scientists)
yes bc it is well performed with different "voices" and the story is funny
less of the childish "american" sex... But I guess that is why a lot of readers reat it :) Myself like grandma mazur and Lula.
Laughed out loud a couple of times. Some seriously good oneliners
Why nations succeed :)
Clarity of the importance of freedom to create wealth for all!
I think they are correct on China! You only get some wealth for the elites when you do not have political freedom
The first part of the book is really good stuffThe last part of the book seemed more a election manifesto... As Schiff seems to be going into politics this may be the case. I am however not really interested in American politics :)
