I love this book, and I am so happy that Ms Goldstein wrote it and that I am reading it! For the person who knows little or nothing about history to the person who knows quite a bit, she fills in the blanks and explains very clearly what happened and why in an interesting, compelling, objective way.
This is a book that should be read widely and often!
