frankly, i think this book is grounded more on opinions than fact. Marco polo's trip to China was recently proven possible(it was in national geographic) anyway, where he really went is arbitrary, more important than his actual travels was his book, which had an enormous impact on medieval ideas. just because he didn't discuss foot binding and tea ceremonies doesn't mean that he never saw them, it just means that he didn't care about them as much as he cared about imports, exports, trade routes, and religion(of course he cared about religion, he was part of a mission sent by the pope, and, after all, this is during the age of faith)
