It was very informative, but a bit dry. Reads a lot like a textbook, but all the info you will probably ever need for an overview of chinese history up to the Qing.

Came away with a better appreciation the sweep of Chinese history. Many uncomfortable parallels with modern America and our destructive political infighting.
