Currently Reading: The Revenge of Geography by Robert D. Kaplan

I am currently about halfway through with The Revenge of Geography by Robert D. Kaplan. I am finding this to be a fascinating book and it gave me these thought provoking questions to consider:

All the world is basically having to live with the geography that they are given, yet countries are constantly trying to expand their territories. In what areas of our lives, do we constantly battle,when we seemingly cannot control our circumstances?

We have those situations that are unexplainable (Black Swan events). What about stock market crashes such as the one in 1987.

How should we really prepare for these type of situations?

Also recently purchased:

The Success Equation by Michael J. Mauboussin

Spillover by David Quammen

Reamde by Neal Stephenson
