It doesn't gloss over or romanticise the dark parts in our history, but nor does it go over bored on the gruesome, but what I like the most is that if something is unknown for certain the author states that, rather than trying to make his theory fit the facts like some researchers do.

My 8 year old nephew loved this, and learnt a lot on a subject that I think would have gone over his head if done in a dryer manner.
