The Rise and Fall of the Great Powers
Author: Tom Rachman
All I know about this book is the title, and I think it’s amazing.
I’m sure the book is fine. The author’s got a reputation of high praise from other writers—but not in the vomity, academic manner of log-rolling. They’re good writers who know a good book that many people will take great enjoyment from reading.
Look: I didn’t read it, okay? That’s why I want you to buy it. I want you to buy it so you can have the pleasure that I’ve obviously denied myself. Obviously.
