If you haven’t read Diamond, though, I’d recommend starting with “Guns, Germs & Steel” & then “Collapse” but all three are worth reading.
The Most Important Book I Read This Summer
Mark Suster

You guided me on the path of reading about power struggle this year with Collapse, The Accidental Superpower, and Guns, Germs, and Steel.

Those took me down a rabbit trail where I found Between the World and Me and Buck and my life hasn’t been the same since.

Thanks Mark.
