Such was the case with STT Enviro, a repeat stock I talked about on this site about 1.5 years ago.

That's what Tim Marshall attempts to do in Prisoners of Geography: Ten Maps That Explain Everything About the World. I enjoyed the geography and history lessons, but I thought the author's conclusions were poorly supported.
