    This simply narrated history of Genghis Khan traces the life of the great conueror from being the son of a minor chieftain in Mongolia to becoming the ruler of arguably the largest empire in history The language is archaic as it was published in the late nineteenth century The names of persons and places have been spelled differently which makes looking up of these names a bit difficult The book doesn't cover the details of his conuests beyond the modern day Afghanistan In short this book is an appetizer that has to be followed up by some sumptuous material on the Khan of the Khans

    My first audiobook wanted a subject I'd enjoy This was pretty awesome It's a non fiction about the life of Genghis Khan Starting from his father to Genghis's deathIt's a very old version with lots of detail I have no problem with either The only issue I had is the authors opinion of few things for example what he thought was barbaric or wrong etc I listened to this in conjunction with reading a Historical Fiction about Genghis Khan Genghis Birth of an Empire by Conn Iggulden It was nice to see how much was or wasn't that different

    Originally published in 1888 this book happens to be uite outdated Jacob Abbott wrote the series Makers Of History aiming at children as its primary audience Hence it's also very simplistic the way it was written although this is not necessarily a bad thingIf you want to read an accurate biography of Genghis Khan go elsewhere I'd even dare to say that the The History And The Life Of Chinggis Khan The Secret History Of The Mongols is accurate than thisHowever the book is very entertaining And the electronic edition that I found on Project Gutenberg is exuisitely done Just for that it deserves 3 stars
