Title:  The Great Wall

Author:  John Man

Publisher:  DaCapo Press

Reviewer: W. H. McDonald, Jr. AAA Founder

The Great Book!

"The Great Wall" by John Man is also a great book! Thoroughly loved it from beginning to end. It kind of felt like I had actually traveled the length of the actual walls (Yes - walls, it is not just one wall!). Author John Man, who has a way of making something that is historically complex come across as both interesting and entertaining; while at the same time, he manages to educate the reader.

This is one history book well worth reading. I was ignorant enough to think I knew a little something about Chinese history; I found that I knew nothing. This book is well researched and goes beyond just the physical building of the walls. The author manages to skillfully inter-weave politics, history, culture, and related stories into a literary blueprint of the history of the walls. The book should be considered the ultimate authority on the history of the Great Wall of China; this is the gold standard that scholars and historians should use to study.

I highly recommend this book for all those readers interested in history, China or who want to learn something new. The book receives the American Authors Association's highest book rating!

The Great Wall receives the Founder's Personal Recommendation & Endorsement!

Winner of the 2008 American Authors Association's Silver Quill Award!
