I would recommend this book because it is an easy yet informative read for me personally. I found the use of documents from that specific time to be very interesting and the way he wrote made you literally see exactly what is happening like your overviewing the situation. I also believe the author completed his purpose because he tells you about what the Aztec's did and how they felt on the situation they went through.
