The Mongol army led by Genghis Khan subjugated more lands and people in 25 years than the Romans did in 400. In nearly every country the Mongols conquered, they brought an unprecedented rise in cultural communication, expanded trade, and a blossoming of civilization.

Jack Weatherford's study of primary source material has produced a brilliant book. It is a work of non-fiction that you cannot stop listening to. Weatherford's insights into trade, money and science (and how the Mongols spread these things) make this book incredibly valuable.
The performance was also excellent-the reader was not annoying.
