Book Review of How the Irish Saved Civilization (Hinges of History)

How the Irish Saved Civilization (Hinges of History)
knut avatar reviewed on + 52 more book reviews

I found this comprehensive history of the salvation of literature a fascinating read. Not necessarily for the Irish connection in my family, but to learn how nearly we lost the wisdom of the ages through neglect and war.
The author wove the stories of people, places and events together so carefully and engaged my attention from page one.
This is on my keepers bookshelf, although a paperback copy I own has so many notations and underlines it will be there also, just to share with special readers.
