Product Description

Product Description

In the 1300s, a third of the population of Europe died of plague carried by rat-borne fleas, shocking the medieval world to its foundations. “Very rarely,” award-winning author Charles Mee writes, “does a single event change history by itself. Yet an event of the magnitude of the Black Death could not fail to have had an enormous impact.” Here, in this Kindle Single, is the counterintuitive story of the plague and how, despite the horrible suffering it created, it actually opened people's minds to the possibilities of science and human creativity.

3.0 out of 5 stars Doesn't cost much. . . 17 July 2013
By John Alldredge - Published on Amazon.com

.. . but it's a pretty short "book".

It was worth reading but I think you'd learn more from Wikipedia.

If you knew nothing about "the Black Death", reading this will give you a bit of background but you'd never call it an in-depth study.

Not worth the download for history buffs. If I had taken time to read the description on Amazon, I would not have bothered with this "book" (but I downloaded it & read it in a few minutes).

KInda like you're expecting a meal but get a bite of a candy bar instead.
