    I am a High School sophomore and I chose to read this book for my project. I really enjoyed reading this book.
     I really liked how the book started from the beginning of where the Aztecs descended from and what tribe they
    had descended from. It addresses the mythical beginning of the Aztecs,  the empire builders, conquering heroes
    , the resistance, and even the aftermath of the conquest. This book separates each chapter into individual
    sections that helped me better understand each event that occurred. I could see the main ideas better with the
    help of the section breaks within the chapters. The thing I love most about this book is that there are pictures that
     helped me illustrate what the Aztecs did and where they lived, whether it was a picture of a map or a picture of
    an Aztec artifact. The book also contains little side notes that I found very helpful. The side notes either helped
    explain the picture better or gave more insight as to what the section in the book was talking about. I also thought
    the timeline that chronologically listed the Aztec rulers in the back was something unusual in a book, but for this
    research project it was very useful to me. I feel like this book contained so much information along with maps of 
    the Aztec Empires that it was a mini version of google in the palm of my hands. The author does a very nice job
    making sure everything listed is well explained and in order so there is no confusion as to what happened first.
    He goes into detail on all the necessary topics and does not vaguely go from topic to topic. The one thing I would
    like is if the author talked a little more about the fall of the Aztec empire like he does with the rise of the Aztec
    empire. Towards the beginning is really the only time it refers to the fall with a little short summary and picture of
    when the Spanish came to take over the Aztec Empire.
