Wow! Great read. Very Comprehensive, but not tedious. The book moves at a modest rate. The history of Mexico is very complicated and Captivating History writing team does a good job of breaking it down. He gives more than just dry facts. He adds his interpretation of the facts that brings the history alive and explains how Mexico got to where it is today.

Sir William Wallace (1270-1305) era - y es - un icono nacional escocés de máxima importancia. Nacido como el hijo más joven y sin tierras de un hombre de baja nobleza (Sir Malcolm Wallace), su sorprendente ascenso para convertirse en una leyenda militar e histórica, un patriota ejemplar y un héroe nacional, es una representación de la narrativa más desfavorecida con la que muchas personas se identifican en el cine y la vida real.

Unlike many other ancient peoples, the culture and beliefs of the Israelites exist in modern society. They managed to survive through wars, persecution, and numerous revisions and adaptations caused by new invaders or internal rebellions. Because of their significance in contemporary society, it’s important to learn more about the Israelites in order to fully understand how they developed and managed to contribute so heavily to the current culture of the Western world.

The company I work for is just beginning to use Agile methodology as part of our product development process, so I wanted to check out an introduction to the system. This book has given me some good background about the development of the program, and a better understanding of the common variations of Agile and their practical applications. The case studies presented were especially helpful.
