Simply fantastic!!!

by RJCalixto7000 on Dec 2, 2012

Truly one of the best books I've ever read. History, politics, corruption, power, all the ingredients are concerning modern man simply shown as the wheel of the lifestyle of mankind persists, often unpunished. Even Machiavelli would like to read this book.

Path Between the Seas

by Eric E on Nov 22, 2012

I was stationed in Panama between 1990 and 1991, and that was the first time I read this book; it is a wonderful history of the events leading up to the construction of the canal, and then detailing both the French and the American construction efforts. I remember thinking at the time it was the best history book I'd ever read. Its now been 20 years since I left Panama, and I have to admit that it is still a wonderful book, with really two entirely different stories, the first pertaining to the French effort, the second to the American effort. This book is a lot like McCullough's John Adams, it brings both the characters and the period.... and even more importantly, the environment alive for the reader. Why the environment? It is really the Panamanian jungle and the Chagres River that are the arch villians in this story. I think I've now read the book 4 times in total, and I expect I will read it at least once more before the inevitable big dirt nap. Excellent book, great story, you will not be disappointed. By the way, McCullogh's Johnstown Flood and John Adams are two wonderful books that should not be missed. Why? They both take a historical event, humanize it, make a story out of it, and stay with the reader for years....If you like your history to be a story and more than a series of data points, you will like McCullough's writing style...
