Why read the book…

Why read the book when the documentary was so easy to watch. I screened this National Geographic documentary of Guns, Germs and Steel for my students. I really enjoyed the first part so much that I brought it home and carried on with the next two episodes. The book still sits on my shelf, 10% read. It was interesting reading but the font size was just a little too small. Perhaps I will pick up that book soon.

The most endearing part was when Diamond broke down as he was standing in a hospital ward full of children infected with malaria, some of them really sick.
