An interesting—and unusual—approach to history. It works well, really. I didn't entirely trust the history presented; it seemed a bit too . . . pro-establishment, I guess. Sometimes in ways that look naive with hindsight. But I did trust it enough to continue with it, and it was fun to go along with the ride. You'd have to be a bit of a history junkie to even consider a volume this size, and if you are one, you may find that it's not as serious as you'd like. But myself, I thought it struck a decent balance.
