Really enjoyed Peter's TED talk and couldn't wait to read this. What I found though was that although the book contains a heap of very interesting and I am certain, well researched facts, it never really feels like it brings everything together as a whole.
Good read but ultimately, scannable.

Gave this book as a present to someone. Had a quick thumb through, some really interesting facts and information. It is written in a very accessible manner and is fairly easy reading if you have a spare Saturday. One or two viewpoints I might question based on the evidence given, but overall a thoroughly fascinating read!
