I've abandoned Midsomer Murders for the moment in favour of "The Co-op's Got Bananas!". Apart from Hunter Davies being Scottish there is a lot which echoes my childhood.
Brilliant book by a brilliant mind. His first book too. Essential reading I reckon. Just about to go for a second read of it to try and remember more of it! Enjoy.
Homo Deus - I found it fascinating. It's pure speculation on where we'll get to over this coming century, albeit with a formidable insight. It's quite damning of the human race, fairly bleak in some ways, probably put a few people off. Not as good as Sapiens but a very worthy read I'd say.
What effects exactly, the unbalanced sex ratio? That’s mainly a cultural issue and even without a one child policy and a ban on dowries in place many female infants are killed in India and other countries.Point taken. I very much had my tongue in cheek....although those who have seen the effects of China's one child policy might think the previous comment just as inflammatory.
No point in responding, you've already made up your mind.
