I disagreed with Ferguson on many theoretical issues, but this is after all just a book on history, so that's what you should expect.
The author's writing style flows more like a fictional narrative than a history book-- which is an impressive feat considering the subject matter.
I highly recommend the book, and I believe that anyone with an interest in history - financial or not - will enjoy the book immensely.
