It is a good book for those who love history and asked questions such as why did europe invade the americas and not the other way around. It was a thought provoking book and not really that hard of a research type book to read. His other book collapse was not as great but still good enough to enterain by reading it.

Again for a history lover. It has got it all.. Catherine's constant sexual appetite and her power plays. Great read to see how she got to where she did and what she did with her power.

For why the Europeans invaded the Americas and not vica versa I found that Carnage and Culture was a very good read and was packed with PC BS.

So, where does the author of this text stand on Catherine and horses? Did she, or didnt she?

Gotcha. Well I had heard it was a myth, but I am curious to hear what your author says. If you dont mind, let me know what the author said when you finished the book.

Was listening to NPR radio on the commute and had a segment on books and recently bought three books from amazon.

Instructions for American Servicemen in Britain, Australia and France....1942

Fun little books. So much poetry and it is cliff notes on how to act in the foreign country. It takes only ten minutes to read and so full of history and the books always encourage to put aside difference and not let hilter machine work its stuff.

easy summer read but yet so informational and histroic

Twilight, by Stephanie Meyer.

Okay, let me put it this way. If you like PG rated teen romance novels, with a little touch of emo, then this is for you.

If you're looking for a ripping yarn about bloodsucking otherworldly terrors, then you should know that no one gets cacked in this book for the first 350 pages, and even then it happens offstage.

Bumping this thread...


I'm currently reading Ernest Hemingway's "For Whom the Bell Tolls."

Good book.

I just finished Neal Stephenson's "Snow Crash." I liked it, but was disappointed with the ending.

Both the Emperor and Conquerer series by Conn Igulden. They are both historical fictions Emperor follows Julius Caesar, and Conquerer follows Genghis Khan.

If you fancy yourself religious, or you are ego-involved in any non-scientific belief system, this will be too irritating for you, but if you're intellectually open to a rigidly scientific dismissal of any and all suspicions/myths/religions, it is quite illuminating. I can honestly say it's changed the way I think of mankind in a fundamental way.

Two thumbs up!
