i very much enjoyed the first three chapters - style of writing and subject matter. i think the book is well-researched. but i felt like i was slogging through the rest of it because the style of writing changed to chapters by subject matter. i wished that he would have picked just a couple of instances out and wrote about them for each subject. i wanted to know more about the people and events but they were only presented in a paragraph or a page.
history is very entertaining because people have been caught up in superstition. people struggled with poverty, prejudice, superstition.
i was particularly taken with the john law story about how paper money became popular. royalty viewed it as a solution to the economic woes of the government. print more and everyone will be happy, except when too much money was printed and it became worthless. this story is a play or a musical waiting to happen.
