I have given this book 4 stars for a number of reasons. The conclusions drawn and the history itself are very impressive and it is both enlightening and enjoyable to read. However, it's one drawback is that on occasion it does feel rushed as the author does not take the time to go into the greatest amount of detail. That said considering the subject matter and the span of time the book covers I'm not sure this could be done without a multi volume series of at least three books. Overall I did find it a rather lovely read and it has at least provoked discussion (argument would only just be too strong) amongst myself and my friends. All in all, my hat off to Mr Kerr.

a small book on a large subject, just enough to whet your appetite if you want to go further, but ok as a general overview too, cant go wrong with it really.
