So I am a huge history buff so I found this book very interesting. It talks about looting of art from across the generations and all over the world. Some of the stories I have heard but most I haven't. You can tell that the author is passionate about this and a lot of research was involved. It's so amazing how important art has always been. Even now the more art you have the more wealth you have. During wars the victors always took great pride in whatever they coul loot from the conquered areas. If you love art or history, you will love this.  I recieved a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
