I really tried with this one but found it a struggle. Maybe because it's a lot of history to try and fit into one volume. I love Jason Goodwin's fiction set during the Ottoman Empire, but this just didn't do it for me. Hopefully the next reader will be more appreciative.

A very interesting book covering the history of the Ottoman empire, with lots of fascinating insights into the lives of the different rulers. It wasn't all about wars, it covers the opulent way they lived and the beautiful gardens and sumptuous banquets they held, together with the different methods of ruling and keeping the various tribes as a cohesive unit.
I am taking this with me the March London meetup. Hopefully it will appeal to someone there or it will be wild released.
