Quite frankly I was bored by this litany of Scottish people and their ancestors and all their accomplishments. I get it. Scotland produced a lot of talented thinkers. I supposed the first several chapters were laying the historical groundwork as to why the Scots are such go getters, but I really didn’t see the connection. To me, it all just seemed like a who’s who of the kilted set. And of course we all know the Greeks invented everything, amirite?
