Niall Ferguson certainly has a way of altering your perception of the world's history and as a result; altering the way we see today's world. This book definitely has that effect on me. Whilst staying true to statistical analysis and professional historiography, Ferguson has also written this book in an extremely gruelling, emotional and dramatic flair which captivated me. The very fact he can switch to pop-culture references/light humour to disturbing and very graphic content is also seem less and appropriate. Bloody good book.
