Guns, Germs and Steel by Jared Diamond - A Short Summary & Review

A short summary of the book Guns, Germs, and Steel:

The factors that make a society a pillager or a pillagee.

My favorite Jared Diamond quote from the book:

"Much of human history has consisted of conflicts between the have and the have nots."


Questions I pondered while reading Guns, Germs, and Steel:

Why didn't the Norsemen create any biological devastation?

Wouldn't hunter-gatherer societies develop artisan skills during the winter?

My review of Jared Diamon's Guns, Germs, and Steel:

Germs appear to be humanity's biggest bane.

Historically, resource exploitation has not done well for humanity.

The world needs rhino-mounted Banta shock troops.
