really liked it

Fascinating read about Chinese exploration of the world before Columbus. Sadly, while the author offers many plausible theories and circumstantial evidence of his theory that the Chinese sailed to the Bahamas (and Rhode Island, among other places) he offers no hard proof. Would have been better if he offered his theories as just that - theories, and not as facts.
