Great narration! As for the book, it is an impressive historical summary of many countries and regions. Yet, while I totally agree with the main premise of the book - need for inclusive political and economic institutions, I think the book could do more on exploring the causes of such institutions. It is unclear why authors so aggressively criticize other theories of growth, as they could be helpful. Also some questions are left unanswered. For example, why should it be given that society with inclusive political institutions would never vote to restrict technological growth or economic openness? The case in point are new populist regimes in the U.S. and other countries.

interesting stories about development

The book has plenty of interesting stories and describes few very innovative research projects. But it is by far not a comprehensive overview of development economics or even corruption issue. I'd suggest less focus on own research, and also more leniency on identification issues - after all in the real world, unlike in academia, one first poses a question and then answers it the best he or she can, and not vice versa.
