I read this book twice in paper and am also putting it onto my e-book for easy reference. A good read but more importantly it ties together many important historical events, such as the revolutionary war, slavery, discovery of America, settling of America and the world economy. It also show how people lived in the 17 and 18 hundreds. A fascinating book.
