The Knowledge - How To Rebuild Our World From Scratch

Website here.

I recently bought the book. It's an enjoyable read, but it would be improved significantly if the author had included diagrams, rather than relying on description to explain ideas. For example, he writes how a millstone works, but there's no diagram alongside it to show. There's too much reliance on tell, rather than show.

Another thing is the lack of in-text citations.

Anyway, there's a forum here to discuss the book's subject. I figure people here would be interested in it.
