The author writes will and give it in a very detailed way. That you can understand what is happening in the past. For example: There is 7 generations of human beings if you count the first ape that walked on two legs and today human beings that you and I see everyday in your life. Did you know that China and the Egyptians has Dynasties in the past. As I was reading getting towards the last few chapters. It was getting political, policy making, and current events issues. I can tell the author that he wrote this book for retirement and for retirement age.
