anyone read Genghis Khan?

I got a copy of Genghis Khan and the Making of the Modern World for Christmas and have only started, but I have found it very enjoyable and informative so far. The book covers a man and a period that are misunderstood in popular culture. I have to admit ignorance in regards to GK and his world so I'm looking forward to finishing this read. It seems to be well-received in the Amazon reviews, for what that is worth. Anyone else read this?

Also received a copy of The Guns of August. Good reading times ahead.

i read it and enjoyed it - although some of his claims in the book seem a little ridiculous

overall its very well told - well worth the read

shiet i got dis book. nice read
