The book was reviewed by The Washington Post, and The Wall Street Journal and given praise by Kirkus Reviews.The book focuses on topographical and geographical landmarks (rivers, oceans, mountains, etc.) as distinct advantages in a nation's ability to dominate others economically, industrially and militarily. With the use of maps, Zeihan is able to point out that navigable rivers, or access to the oceans, along with a reliable road or rail network make a critical difference, of which the USA is featured to have twelve navigable rivers, two oceans on either of its flanks, which are key in relying less on large land infrastructure projects, which in turn encourage small government.
