Someone recommended the book Non Zero. It looks very interesting but one well written negative review points out that while the author's previous book (The Moral Animal) was well researched and documented, this book seems to cherry pick the evidence to fit his "story arc".
For example, the review states:
This leads to breathtaking leaps of fact and logic, such as a passage attributing the "many millions who died in the Holocaust" to the 19th century German nationalism provoked "when industrialization swept lands that had just barely left the Middle Ages."
Please provide some significant examples of historical facts he got wrong.
