Los Angeles Times
A fascinating history lesson and conversation topic.
Palo Alto Daily News
It is broad in scope, yet it probes deeply; it is unbiased and has perspective....1,000 Years, 1,000 People will surprise, tickle, confound, and anger all who enter its pages.
Portland Oregonian
In a bite-size world, it's intellectually nourishing stuff.
USA Today
A list for the ages, a who's-who for the entire millennium....The result is the ultimate Book of Arguments.
