Frankly a little disappointed. Author seems to have a chip on his shoulder about the subject. Also the narration is flat and uninspiring. Overall okay in that there were some factually interesting points but if I could do it over, I wouldn`t buy it again.

This is an extraordinary account of the history of what I thought was ordinary. I was unaware of much of what goes on in the world and for example went straight to my computer to look up Amsterdam and it window women. It is nothing less than a closer look at history, motivations and the world of people. The last chapter was particularly enlightening!
