I truly love this book! It's taking me forever to read it because I am actually savoring it. I've even re-read chapters so that I could make sure I got everything! I have this on my Kindle, and I'm highlighting and making notes like crazy--something I never thought I'd do with the Kindle. If I had this in print, I believe the book would already look like a well used, and well circulated library copy. Usually I have two books going at once. I read book A on the bus during my morning commute, and book B during my evening commute. Not with this one! It has my full and undivided attention. I might be in love with a history book.
