Love it, love it, love it. Heard Ian speak on NPR about his research, and knew I had to read/do the book. Thoughtfully arranged, well presented. Everyone who rode in my car just sat quietly and listened. . . then discussed! Really fun with my 16 yo.
The compare/contrast style worked particularly well with this topic, as the enormous span of years could be difficult to present in a cogent manner. Bonus points for making what could have been REALLY dry reading so accessible.
