This books has great reading sections and does a good job of explaining the material. It makes the material come to life. The book's auther takes an objective viewpoint but can be too 'nice' to some characters throughout history, in my opinion. The reading sometimes got over my head, but that's to be expected being in high school reading a college text book (nothing the instructor couldn't help with).
