This is not a book that will keep you reading through the night and not only because one night would not be enough. This is a book you will keep on reading for years, picking it up to broaden your knowledge about still new authors and historical characters only to be surprised most of the time that, yes, they are included and given a broad and comprehensive treatment as well.
