I enjoyed this romp through history, showing how the past isn't quite what it's made out to be (at least in comparison with the present).

The only chapter I had a problem with was the one on poverty where I found his definition highly limiting and not in line with experience (though certainly many were not poor, but others I think definitely qualify and he seemed to just want to debunk more than was straightforward).

I read a chapter in the evening to relax for bed and it was an entertaining and pleasant way to spend the time.

My neighbors were having a garage sale, so I put out a "free" box and put this in. It was gone when I brought the box in.
