I really enjoyed reading this book. It read like an interesting textbook, engaging and informative, but was almost informal at times. Parts were like a friend telling a story rather than reading a historical account. It was entertaining, but quite dense with information so it took a while to get through and process. It kept me intested though, and there is a great extended bibliography at the end too. I know this book has sparked sme controversy, and it certainly is different from what I learned in school but its an alternative viewpoint (which I always value learning about) and very thoight provoking.
