A remarkable book!,
This review is from: The Travels of Marco Polo (Classics of World Literature) (Paperback)
If all the history books were written in such a manner as this one, all people would become historians :) Seriously, that's the way to present and transfer the knowledge. Maybe not every fact is accurate and there are some speculations but that only makes this book more wonderful for an inquisitive mind. The most extraordinary thing is that the book describes the real world (or its legends) in a way that is close to a fairy tale.
I now understand why this book was an inspiration to many a generation of explorers...
