Well researched, great analysis and very engaging. Disilvio draws lessons from history with the intent of aiding Americans in gaining clarity and wisdom, and he certainly achieves that goal. As other reviewers on Amazon & elsewhere have noted, 'The Winds of Time' is "a must-read!"

Very well researched, thorough but very overwhelming. It took me quite a long time to get it read as I could only absorb a fraction at at time. Well worth it if you are interested in history!
