I still prefer "The Greek News" over this one. As always, it presented history in a clever newspaper format. It covers Aztec culture and religion rather extensively. That is good, as I've never read much on that aspect. Comes off as a little patronizing in tone, but just to mimic the style of writing in real newspapers. The jokes and puns are cheesy and eye-roll inducing. Overall, quite fun to read, and more accessible than a history textbook.
