This is a fascinating history of what we now call black powder. For centuries it was the only known explosive on earth. From medieval China to the Civil War, gunpowder was a critical technology. The author makes the subject not just readable but intriguing. You pick up a lot of tidbits about history and a great overview of how some technological discoveries really do change history. I loved it.

This book has interesting facts but it is very boring to read. The history is laid out very factually and lacks excitement. If you are just looking for something similar to textbook reading get if you are looking for a good read don't/
