# The Long Summer

I've started a page on Brian Fagan's book The Long Summer, which is a nice fun-to-read (probably oversimplified) history of climate change and its effects on people since the last ice age.

I would like to put a lot of information from this book into the Azimuth Project, but it's taken me quite a while just to put in the data from the timelines for 18000 BC to 3000 BC. The time-consuming part was creating little pages that explain various terms.

Hmm, I just noticed the table for the period after 3000 BC! More fun for another day...

Got my copy today...I'll try to write about the key aspects of the book during my coffee breaks, like JB suggested in the "Recommeded Reading" thread:

What I'd eventually like, though I don't expect it to happen soon, is not so much "reviews" of books as summaries of their main points.

GREAT!

If you write about it during coffee breaks, I'll promise to finish up the "timeline" I was writing.
