Excellent and easy to read book,
This review is from: The First Emperor of China (Hardcover)
Only half way through this book at the minute but will update review when finished.
Firstly the only real criticism I can come up with for this book and that is the photography’s of the emperor's works and wall hangings are in black and white. In this day photographs in hardback books should be in colour considering how much extra we pay for the hardback edition.
The pluses are many so far, the book is very well written, a lot of information is contained within an easy to read format. The author makes great judgements on his sources and isn’t afraid to let the read make up his own mind on his opinion. There is an almost stay to the next page feeling from this book, a feeling that going to bed without reading the next page will leave you with a bad nights sleep.
I can’t help but advise this book to anyone, have already advised my Grandmother on a purchase.
