Narrator Henry Strozier does a fine job bringing focus and balance to a difficult and uneven text. Diamond (GUNS, GERMS, AND STEEL; COLLAPSE) is a bold and provocative historian, and his critique of how nations meet crisis offers a singular set of examples that include Finland, Chile, Japan (twice), Germany, and Indonesia, as well as the present U.S. Speaking from experience about the countries he's visited and the languages he speaks, he's created a challenge for his narrator, who must deliver a social analysis in the voice of a personal travelogue. Strozier sounds exactly as you'd want Jared Diamond to sound, mellow in years, learned, and well traveled. His rich voice holds our ear--even while the mind wanders and the trail goes cold.
