Not sure this book really needs much of a review, it is a simple book that details exactly what it says on the cover. Not particularly exciting but very informative and at some points quite eye opening. For instance, one ruler killed so many people that it affected the carbon dioxide levels during those years….but you have to read the book to find out who and when.

Give it a go, it is only 116 pages.
