Collapse: How Societies Choose to Fail or Succeed by Jared Diamond

I've wanted to read this for quite some time and was disappointed when I finally told myself that it just wasn't my cup of tea. Its a good 600 pages and I'm very interested in the idea but after reading the first 100 pages I found it to be too environmental for me, which is fine considering he is trained in biology. There are just too many books on my shelf to read instead.

So, for those of you interested in why societies fail or succeed due to environmental reasons (and some societal ones as well) then check this book out! He's a straightforward writer and a Pulitzer winner too!
