I disagree with that books premise. Europeans did not conquer the world because of diseases they brought and thier geographic location, Europeans were more advanced than everyone else simply because they had the Romans and Greeks to model thier kingdoms around. While the Greeks were chisseling statues of the gods and conquring the entire know world(Alexander's reign) the rest of humanity becides the Persians were building mudhuts and eating dirt. Europeans were rather backward for a few years after Rome died, but when colonialism hit so did joint stock companies and the rest is history, Europeans just flat out had superior ideas than the rest of the world. At least ideas that involve money and war, the Europeans counquered the world with just money and war.
