💡 Tips from Warp News: Food out of thin air & maps of progress
Ken Follett's new book, interactive maps that show the world's progress, food out of thin air, why people are so pessimistic about the future - and finally a way to know if the ice cream at McDonald's is broken.
I usually don't give you tips on fiction books, especially if they aren't about the future.

Well, first it is an excellent book. Just wonderful. It is the fourth book in Folletts Kingsbridge suite that started with The Pillars of the Earth. But Evening is a prequel; it takes place before Pillars, about a thousand years ago.
That is the second reason. Follett shows how brutal life was then and what huge progress we've made since.
