Overall Review:  

Books about history are sometimes monotonous to read.  Some are longwinded, filled with the author’s prejudices and conclusions.  Others are plain boring.  The 5000 Year Leap: A Miracle that Change the World is none of these things. 

Broken done into manageable chapters that thoroughly yet concisely illustrate the topics, the book reads quickly and is set up so well it could be used as a reference book.  Just turn to the chapter you are interested in and read away.  The writing is mainly connected passages taken from the founding fathers' letters and publications this give the reader a feeling that they are taking a class from George Washington, John Adams, Thomas Jefferson and many others.

Very interesting as well as enlightening, I highly recommend this book.
