Tackle the Library: The French Revolution
by: Jon Oldham
The French Revolution shaped our modern-day world. The events of this significant period are both important and honestly confusing. Have you ever wanted to learn about this crucial time but felt overwhelmed by the number of books on the subject? Have you tried to read dry Wikipedia articles on Marie Antoinette which soon made your eyeballs glaze over? Do you simply not care that much about the French Revolution to commit a lot of time to the subject?
Tackle the Library takes the top 5 books on a subject and turns them into a cohesive story that is not only interesting to read but highly informative. This book makes it a painless process; no other text naturally explains the causes, the characters, the philosophy, the social stratum, and the violence in a way that keeps the pages turning.
