Insightful, Thoughtful and Engaging
''Heaven Earth and Time'' is one of those books that manages to weave a story around you that feels magical and evocative... but the wonderful thing about this book is that it is all true. Daniel Buckley delves into the ancient world, providing a wonderfully thorough and engaging look at just how the world today has been influenced and shaped by eras gone past and just how many in the world today are completely unaware of this intriguing factoid. We live in our modern world with out astounding technology and oftentimes forget about the civilizations and people who build the world we have today.
The author writes in a vivid and evocative tone that really sets this book on an enjoyable and intriguing path... offering an insightful, thoughtful and thought-provoking look at civilizations and cultures such as the Greeks that have provided the blue-print for the life we live today. The well-written book is fast-paced, well-researched, easy to understand and superbly engaging from start to finish. I have to say that as a closet nerd this is the perfect type of book where you can get a wonderfully thorough glimpse into the ancient world that engages the sense in an entertaining and educational way.
