This is such a fascinating read, I already knew a fair bit about Genghis Khan but this has so much depth to it, it was a whole new world of discovery for me. This is no dry tome either, it’s a fascinating read for a beginner or officianado alike. I had never understood the huge impact that the Mongol empire had on the world, previously I had read about it in terms only of Europe’s “narrow escape” but reading this book has been a revelation. I also learned a great deal about Mongol culture and beliefs that I had not come across in other books on the topic. What an amazing man Genghis Khan was and what a great read this was! If you like your history to be readable and fascinating,if you don’t know much about the Mongol empire, if you’ve ever wondered how the Western world ended up as it is today, buy this book and be prepared to be astonished!
