I am very glad I listen to it

Written in a conversational style that gets you through a lot of dense information and complexity regarding the timeline facts and dates. There is a strong social anthropology theme and it is consistent in tone and form. Each chapter has a quote to set the tone and ending paragraphs to summarize the gist. For me, this was important on a very personal level as I am delving into my ancestry that was only recently made known to me.

Excellent....clear, absorbing.

This seemed like a monumental read but was never a chore. The book feels seamless, from one period to another. The per-Columbian period especially is fascinating since most of us know only Aztec and Maya. Highly recommended!

Exceptionally engaging stuff.

Recommended to anyone who wants to comprehend Mexico, not just understand superficially. The author's effort is worth, thank to him.

Don't bother...

This narrative is one big "Just So", Fallacy.

Weak! No supporting arguments, evidence or datta.
