Reading is one of the best things that can be done nowadays, when many people are forced to stay at home. Reading is great but which books should we read? My recommendation is the Pulitzer prize winning best seller “Guns, Germs and Steel” by Jared Diamond. We entered the year of 2020 with a global epidemic. The name of the virus that threatens the lives of many people: COVID-19 In 2012, we had the MERS outbreak. In 2003, there was a SARS epidemic. If you’re wondering the effect of geography in the development of civilizations; why tribal life continues in some regions of the world while states are established in other regions, effects of germs in human history you will definitely love this book.
For those of you who want to order the book online, Turkish name of it is “Tüfek, Mikrop ve Çelik”.
