Before you consider reading or listening to a History account, read or listen to this book! This book will make you change the way you view and read history. Think you understand a Historical event, time, or personage? Think again. This book forces you to make a paradigm shift as how to receive historical information, even your own! Just because you experienced it doesn't make it the true historical account. Before assessing blame, condemning players, or bestowing prestige and according accolades, read this book and get a better understanding on how to read, study and understand History. If I ever teach History, this book will be week ones required reading!
A perspective on history that has rarely been voiced so comprehensively. May take a few reads to fully understand, although I found listening to it much easier than reading it. The reader sounded like a white man, and I have to wonder why they didn't choose a Black man to narrate, since I assume the author, being from Haiti, was Black. Just wanted to bring it to attention.
