This book is fun and interesting. I re-read it every few months. It's a great book to read while in a waiting room or on a bus. You won't have to concern yourself with keeping up with long prose and complex plot lines when you need to up and leave at any moment.
Many people have given this a bad rating due to taking offense to a quote or two, claiming it is inaccurate or disrespectful. But the fact of the matter is this book compiles facts on hundreds of historical figures, political, military, and social, and some of the facts are based on hearsay. However, when this is the case, the author does his best to research them and even prefaces the facts by saying: "According to so-and-so" or "It is widely believed, though not proven, that...."
Great book. I would recommend it to anyone (and have!).
