Austen Allred: "Absolutely incredible book. Probably in my top five all-time."
Tim Ferriss: "[Genghis Khan and the Making of the Modern World] has been recommended to me by several billionaires."
Ben Horowitz: "Unexpectedly the most interesting book on the topic of how you think about inclusion."
The Mongol army led by Genghis Khan subjugated more lands and people in twenty-five years than the Romans did in four hundred. In nearly every country the Mongols conquered, they brought an unprecedented rise in cultural communication, expanded trade, and a blossoming of civilization. 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.
