It is not casual reading because it is fact dense. I found myself rationing it. I only allowed myself a chapter a week just so it soaked in.
Each chapter is on a very different topic. So one chapter was about the deforestation caused by dependency on wood. Another chapter was about the legal games mill owners played with water-level in the rivers and so on.
If you are North American, skip the last chapter which tries to draw parallels between a declining medieval France and a declining modern United States.
