Want to know how much shitty a book can be? Try this!
Ancient civilisations always interest me. I love knowing about the past and I guess everyone loves it. Obviously, I was excited to read this, but all I found in this book was mini boring history book full of dates and other irrelevant stuff! (my academic history book is umpteenth times more interesting than this! )
The only things you can learn from this book are:
- Mayans knew about cocoa.
- Spanish missionaries destroyed the majority of Mayan historical records.
- Maya civilisation used to do trade with Olmecs (another ancient civilisation)
That’s all! Seriously!
The author of the book did no editing whatsoever! It seems like all he did was to copy paste newspaper clippings! It would have been far better if the author had mentioned whatever we know about Mayans in a chapter & had dedicated other chapters to mentioning dates, archaeologists etc.

I never thought that a book on Maya civilisation could be this boring.
Now I understand why this book is available for free on kindle. (the author did no effort in writing it & got marketing for his other paid books of hourly history series for free)
Please use the comment section to warn me & other fellow bloggers of other shitty books out there!
Have a nice day ahead 🙂
