This book presents a very entertaining portrayal of little known historical trivia of factors of change caused by the Columbian Exchange between the new world and the old, after Columbus discovery in 1492. Most of these interesting stories of change and interconnectedness between the new and old worlds will have likely not been known by the reader prior to reading this book. Focuses to a large degree food crop exchanges, trade, exploration, culture. Although the stories are entertaining, I was expecting all of these various stories to be tied up into a conclusion forming the authors overall thesis for explaining all of these events. But this may not have been the intended purpose of the book, and it is still worth reading just for noting the interesting stories and observations by the author.
This book would be recommended for those with a great curiosity into the circumstances behind the otherwise largely untold history of the ratification of Constitution. Other less motivated casual listeners might not have their attention held by this lengthy book. Highly recommended if you are interested in this topic.
This book is well-researched, makes convincing arguments, and is entertaining to listen to. The narration is excellent as well.
This is a very interesting book and a great look back in history as Cheney has been involved in many administrations. Thanks Cheney for all your years of sterling service to our country, including adopting a policy of enhanced interrogation tactics for foreign terrorist. This policy has proven to be a great success in protecting our country and, yes, you were right to adopt it and also to seek its continuance.
This is a very revealing look at the Bush Presidency. This book no doubt gives a portrayal that history will no doubt find to be more accurate and logical than the ranting wild accusations and talking points that have due to repetition become conventional wisdom in popular media and popular culture. Many have waited for Bush to finally answer these critics, and he does so with an ease that dismisses these ranting critics as one would dismiss annoying gnats.
