    I'll start off by saying this sin't really the kind of book I normally read....even so, I did find myself enjoying parts of it. The pace moves pretty quickly, and the author writes well. I really think this could have been stretched out to more than 80 pages if it had less footnotes, and a little more description. This guys style is pretty cut and dry. I love that it was written though, this is pretty powerful book that everyone should read once, regardless of how much they know or care about Africa's history.
