A good digest but...,
This review is from: Blood, Iron and Gold: How the Railways Transformed the World (Hardcover)
Personally I found the Cairo-Cape chapter much the most exciting because it's one of the few with an associated map. More often it's difficult to get there with the author because he knows where he's going but I don't.
Suggestion for second edition: add 50 small maps pertinent to the text.
