    This book is a complete waste.

    It reads like a term paper an 8th grader might have written by summarizing encyclopedia articles. Very disjointed and poorly organized. The editor should at least learn to use a spell checker. Page 5 contains these incredible sentences:
    "The latter gave way innninlknnknklkjn the 5th century to..."
    "...scholarsWikipedia:Avoid weasel words took the view that Rome..."
    "...an Etruscan citadel now called Acquarokl ;lk;l;junnjkinbssa was destroyed..."

    The book was edited from Wikipedia Articles. Save yourself the money and just read Wikipedia.
