I have to admit something. I have an addiction. That addiction is to history and geography.
I received this book a long time ago for Christmas one year back when times were simpler. I can remember just reading and studying the maps for days that never ended. Now that I am in college I skip over my textbook and go straight to this one since I practically know where every map is located in the book rather than look it up in the one that came with the class.
If I had to pick one book that influenced me more than any other, this one would be it.
