1) The author's intro explains how he tries to stay as objective and historically accurate as possible; however, the author makes many sweeping statements that are clearly opinion;
2) Some statements are just plain incorrect. For example, the author states that "Christianity says that all non-believers go to Hell, and all believers go to heaven." This is NOT what Christianity states--in fact, according to the tenants of the faith, plenty of believers go to Hell for various infractions. Now, I felt that I couldn't really trust any of the "facts" in this book;
3) The book is just plain dry and boring. I was hoping for the occasional interesting antectote, or even a picture, drawing, or at least one single map of the region--but not one.
I highly recommend that you skip this book.
