Collapse: How Societies Choose to Fail or Succeed

Previous winner of the Rhone-Poulenc prize for science writing, this book takes a sweeping look at human civilisation and attempts to identify common themes that have lead to the downfall of all great societies prior to our own. With this in mind, Diamond takes a look at our own precarious existence and wonders whether our buildings too will one day lie in ruins. As intensely relevant to business as it is to everything else we encounter in our lives, this book may help your business avoid the pitfalls that have plagued us in the past.
