The Code of Civilization

Vyacheslav Nikonov

I can't say I am a follower of politics, but I found this book interesting because it came from a non-Western point of view. The author started during the Italian Renaissance and brought matters up to the first rumblings of the Ukraine war. Ideal listening for anyone studying politics but I would definitely check the facts before quoting. One point I would like to clarify (as I have done the science of nuclear energy at university). The author (or maybe the translation) suggested that the explosion at Fukushima  led to the deaths of over 20,000 people.
19,759 people died as a result of the combined earthquake and resulting tsunami.
Not one death occured as a result of the Fukushima plant explosion.

Well what can I say about gorgeous George's voice? I could listen to it all day and as the narration was over twenty seven hours long, I did.
George can turn the dullest of subjects into a symphony for the ear. He has the kind of voice that makes you go weak at the knees. The book is worth a listen for this point alone but! How about you tune into his podcasts?  Click the Twitter icon below.
