Excellent book July 26, 2011
Its focus was on the Renaissance period, and it really made me realize that we sure could use another Renaissance around here! This period in history is so fascinating. The Greco-Roman influence on Europe, namely Italy, was so great and I loved how people really believed in themselves and believed that God wanted them to succeed. Good product arrived ahead of schedule, and in new condition as advertised by seller. Overall I experience no problems.
