Top critical review
Overly focused on wars and rulers.

While I enjoyed the first book, the second one was a bit of a let down. The book became redundant because it focused too much on war, battles, strife, rulers, and the evil done by them. It would have been nice if there were more stories of what happened between wars; daily life, everyday people, science and tech breakthroughs, and accounts of masterful achievements in diplomacy and peace.
