Commentary by Michael Wade on Leadership, Ethics, Management, and Life
Powerful stuff, that. And like you, I love contemplating big ideas and trends. They don't get much bigger than the development and histories of civilization, do they?Had I listened to this a few weeks before I would have been even more deeply impressed, but I'm just starting 1493, Uncovering the New World Columbus Created by Charles C. Mann. There is no way to summarize in a comment, but here is the interview that inspired me to do something I only do once or twice a year -- I bought the book. http://www.npr.org/2011/08/08/138924127/in-1493-columbus-shaped-a-world-to-beThe interview is just over half an hour, but I'm sure you will be impressed. Do take time to listen.
Thanks, John. I'll check it out. I recall hearing a bit about it when the book first came out.Michael
