This book is very well written, well researched, and the subjects covered are broad. It seems to compliment the instructor in my class very well. The only reason I did not give it 5 stars is a lack of perspective re sustainability, i.e., human kind keeps surviving disasters, endemics, disease, etc., only to increase in population. At some point, the population will no longer be sustainable. While there are certain resources that are in limited supply today, I believe the book should have explored those resources that have the capability to be significant in terms of population limiting - now and in a future tense.
