This review is from: Under the Black Flag (Harvest Book) (Paperback)
I really loved this book. It not only turned me on to the true lives of pirates, but it's given me renewed faith in the idea that history books don't have to be boring and pompous.
Every chapter was great, and I am now a gazillion times smarter than I used to be on this topic. When I went to the National Geographic's Pirate exhibit on the artifacts from the ship "Wydah", I was able to appreciate it much more.
This book really changed my reading habits, and I am thankful I found it.
