Collapse, by Jared Diamond, who also wrote Guns, Germs, and Steel.

Diamond seeks to answer the question of why various civilizations of the past vanished into antiquity, and what lessons we can learn from them (as well as from those that still survive) in order to avoid a similar fate for ourselves. His survey sweeps the globe and the timeline, covering societies past and present from places such as Easter Island, the Yucatan peninsula, the American southwest, Greenland, Japan, Rwanda, and Australia.

    Thank you for offering your book reviews, Librarians. What a refreshing escape from everyday news. Although I am intrigued by the whole zombie apocalypse notion Stephanie, I’m still not quite ready to dive into those pages but thanks for the synopsis. However, “Collapse” by Diamond sounds like it’s more my style so I think I will be diving into those pages real soon, thank you Dennis. And thank you all, keep up the good work.
