A very well researched study that highlights the simple history we are taught with the multiple "why's" that commerce & trade were the forces behind.... no history of inter-actions would be written unless the humans had wanted to, and created the means to make trades..... ie. commerce... truly engaging & entertaining!!
As always, richly done based on thorough research…. believable & written to make this little covered period of history read like a movie script. I enjoyed it immensely.
A neat summary of the politics that led to & surrounded the largest acquisition of land for America. Liked it.
A unique view of the failing of past societies, while many works focus on the rise of various societies, Diamond again wrote a review of past collapses. Unique.
The best work of the scientific discoveries that led to the amazing existence of Dark Matter & Dark Energy…. this work presents the series of discoveries across a century in such a way that each step is understandable & explained in a means easily understandable. Recommended to my friends a great work to understand these amazing discoveries.
Wonderfully written to mix today's aging life, with the amazing views of young life around a depression era circus… highly recommended!!
Rarely are the unique views on the fictional Sherlock Holmes, this time from the scope of the existing science of the 1800's utilized in the stories.
A genre rarely seen about foreign forces in WW II done in english. Uniquely, it is set on a rare, large submarine out in the colonies of the French Empire as Paris fell & some french continued to fight on.
Well presented, factual on every piece I know of those forces, and well edited to flow as a riveting personal account of a group of unique warriors…. the best piece of modern military history I have heard this decade.
This well done piece covers not just what led to the Stock Market Crash, how that crash occurred and finally the many ways the Roosevelt administration tackled the many wrecked portions of America as it broke down the Depression.
We rarely hear much of Vanderbilt today, but this well written work show the vast array of unique historical actions he touched… I found Cornelius Vanderbilt on the short list of historical actors who impressed me.
