Brilliant author, most exciting history book I know of.,
By A Customer
This review is from: The Path between Seas: The Creation of the Panama Canal, 1870-1914 (Paperback)
I certainly did not expect too much excitement from a 700 pages book about the Panama Canal, but David McCullough did an excellent job. He obviously did a lot of research, but his true accomplishment is putting all the little fragments together to one exciting story. This is not just history, it is politics, business, engineering, medicine, etc. And best of all, it is very well written and easy to read.
I like it even better than "Truman", McCulloughs most famous book.
