Very interesting to read the author’s appraisal of the “killer apps” that help the West be above the rest. For those who read “Guns, Germs, and Steel,” the author’s appraisal provides an informed counter argument of how the West became what is today. Strongly recommend.

Insightful book on the world order

Great book to understand our actions and background in Afghanistan. Enjoyed this book and the succinct writing. With all the problems the US have had in Afghanistan, this is a must read for any US person interested in foreign policy and current affairs. This book should serve as a lessons learned for future planning to avoid long winded conflicts without a clear sustainable plan and goal.

Must read material for anybody interested in a better future for the USA

he book consists of descriptions of other countries successful tax practices, and how they contrast with USA tax practices. The book documents how much money the USA government looses every year by having complex-obscure tax laws, versus how much money the government could get via simplifying he code. The author spent a considerable time completing the research and even praises what the irs is currently doing well. The conclusion is very interesting and serves as a good review of what has worked in other countries and why. The US government definitely needs to overhaul the tax code and start from scratch.
