I wanted to learn a bit about Mesopotamia, so I chose this book because of the positite reviews. I'm glad I did! I'm not an academic, curious about history would be an accurate destription. Heavy going at times but well worth the effort in the end.
I found this book absolutely amazing. I can't believe that a single golf pro hasn't told me about it. It should be standard issue for all golf players. Within 3 weeks of practice I have improved to 16 handicap from 23 (been playing 10 years). At last I am improving!
