Totally engrossing and informative. It was difficult to put the book down once I started reading. I will never look at March the same way again!!

More of a fiction mystery fan. Found this book to be riveting and nearly unbelievable in the number of facts contained in these pages. Would highly recommend this book. Jamb

Very good read. Unique perspective on the old adage “Beware the Ides of March.” Very well-researched work, with so much information woven together tightly, but with brisk pacing. Found myself skipping ahead to see what was next in each of the categories.

Great read. The author really goes in depth into lots of different periods in history to prove his points. Hard to put down once you delve in.

I am not a big fan of these kind of books.  I really enjoy science fiction fantasy books.  I have to say, this book grabs your attention, its like a perfect puzzle unfolding.  The ammount of time the author must have spent researching and fitting together all these pieces boggles my mind.  This book is a must read for everyone.  I will be reading it again.
