Incredibly helpful to the specific report I was writing. This book was a lifesaver, and I am so glad I found it. Not only was it teeming with good information, but it was interesting and entertaining because of it. Highly recommend.

After reading this all I can really say is that people really weren't all that reasonable during the so-called 'Age of Reason'. Quite the opposite if you ask me...
This is a intriguing take on this time period, with lots of art from the time, and takes the reader through a series of different perspectives from king to philosopher to midwife and portrays what life was like for each. An engaging overview.
