    just finished "Guns, Germs, and Steel" by some egghead named Jared Diamond

    I liked the overall theory. Continental geography played a huge role in the advancement of technonlgy and therefore the shaping of modern geo-political climate.

    But I disagreed with a ton of his extrapolitations.

    I'm reading the Wheell of time series by Robert Jordan. I'm in Book ten of fourteen of this eleven thousand page series, and really want him to wrap it up.

    Try Plagues and Peoples if you liked that one. It is much older but very well regarded. Also it is not political.

    I just finished "Escape From Camp 14" which is the story of a man who was born into the North Korean gulag. He became the first person to be born into the Gulag to actually escape from it. It is a very sobering read. I put it on a level with "Night" by Elie Wiesel and "First They Killed My Father" by Luong Ung.

    Warning, it is not for the faint of heart.

    If you like that, you should read the long walk, which is the story of a guy who escaped from Siberia by walking to India. Also, Papillion is a classic. The escape from devils island.
