? do the murky motives and actions of foreign countries interest you
? is it reasonable to think that where you live affects how you behave
? are there careless historic choices whose consequences reverberate for centuries
tim marshall has written a great book, in hopes of answering those questions
his journalist career took him to many of the world's war zones and hotspots
the hard lessons he learned there inform his view of geography's consequences
as you'd expect, the territories of china, india and russia are featured prominently
but the geographic limitations of africa and south america were also well discussed
the middle east chapters were more than insightful in making sense of that region
the book was most helpful in understanding other nation's stubborn and fearful behavior
their conduct seems more reasonable once history and topography are considered
marshall's book is a valuable lens with which to view our increasingly complex world

I wish I could go back and reduce my prior performance ratings to make this one more valuable. Scott Brick's quietly dramatic, slightly sinister tone made what would have been a simply fine nonfiction into a captivating listen. Highly engaging content as well.

Anyone looking for a geopolitical analysis of the world and its geographical limitations can find no better introduction than this title. Still as topical and relevant as it was when first published in 2015. Brilliant.
