Jaw dropping

by mathew j on Nov 14, 2013

History books don't tell us nearly enough of the good stuff. I would have listened more if these were the types of stories we were being taught. Jaw dropping at moments. Just goes to show that ppl don't change no matter what century.

Not in depth besides the errors

by brioche on Dec 10, 2009

Has some interesting facts I didn't know about, but I don't know if I can trust their veracity since there are so many errors in this shallowly written book. Not as interesting as it could be and has amazingly short chapters.

ROYALS ARE MESSED-UP, TOO!!

by DRAGONLADY9 on Apr 28, 2007

This book is hysterical! You get to read about all the things that our "betters" did behind the scenes. They are human after all, and sometimes just plain nuts!!! It's amazing that they had any time to run whole countries or religious groups, and that these countries survived their rule is even more astounding! If you like the behind-the-scenes stuff of history, this is a must read. It would even make a great "bathroom book" since the stories are not very long, but very enjoyable and written to give entertainment along with information. BUY THIS BOOK!!!!
