Well written, and I highly advise it.
Obviously what should or should not have been included is a controversial topic but I didn't want to stray into that, obviously things had to be cut to fit in one book and one could have many opinions as to which parts of history deserve the most attention.
The author, so well known for his political interviews, takes a side step to become an enthusiastic story teller who should inspire generations of people to question what they think they know about even the times that they have just lived through. A fascinating delve into history that shows world events, how these have been portrayed in history lessons and in the media, and why they still resonate in the modern world.
It did become a little disjointed in the 20th century as he explained the big characters and their effects upon world history, the flowing vistas he had used became a little bogged down.
I would still highly recommend the book to anyone.
