Vastly more progressive than his European or Asian counterparts, Genghis Khan abolished torture, granted universal religious freedom, and smashed feudal systems of aristocratic privilege. From the story of his rise through the tribal culture to the explosion of civilization that the Mongol Empire unleashed, this brilliant work of revisionist history is nothing less than the epic story of how the modern world was made.

Great insight on Genghis Khan and Pax Mongolia.
I am a fan of Genghis Khan and I learned a lot about him, but most especially what happened after him. O think it is a great book to read but unfortunately I disliked strongly the way it was narrating even though I got acquainted to it after a few hours in. I find the way he changes his voice to indicate that he is quoting absolutely irritating. My distaste towards the narrator's voice is personal though, and I recommend listening to this book if you do not have the time to read it.

Not just a history book
This book is so amazingly written. It isn't just about what transpired in history, it is a deep analysis narrated as a story that could well rival Game of Thrones in my eyes. If there hadn't been some audio quacks in the epilogue, it would have been absolutely perfect but that's really just a minor issue.
