That is so different from what my book actually says that I have to doubt whether Mr. Romney read it. My focus was mostly on biological features…I said nothing about iron ore, which is so widespread that its distribution has had little effect on the different successes of different peoples.
Jared Diamond, author of “Guns, Germs and Steel” • Disputing Mitt Romney’s claim that “culture makes all the difference”, and the presidential candidate’s presentation of his book during a speech in Jerusalem. Romney cited “Guns, Germs, and Steel” while attributing Israel’s economic success both to the Jewish peoples’ culture and the country’s access to natural resources like iron. Diamond also noted that this was not the first time that Romney had mischaracterized his work, referencing Mitt’s 2011 book “No Apology: Believe in America”.  source (viafollow)
