I'm curious to see the reactions to book Guns, Germs, and Steel on this forum. I feel that Diamond did a fantastic job presenting a survey of the concept of "War" as we know it today. There is little political grandstanding, which I appreciate. When it comes to writing a piece that has lasted a solid thirteen years and still remains relevant, I find that very interesting. So, what are your thoughts on the book? Does anyone have any topics they feel he didn't adequately cover or even give acknowledgements to?
