About this book
"As we leave behind, one hopes, a culture of quantitative, linear, abstract, cold tabulations of human experience, Theodore Zeldin's An Intimate History of Humanity offers one attractive way to reflect on the nature of just about everything. His world is vernacular, personal without being personalistic, full of information alchemized into wisdom, pleasurable, witty, unsentimental, and concerned - virtues not in vogue in the realm of cultural remembrance. It's a book to enjoy, pure and simple."
--- Thomas Moore, author of Care of the Soul and Soul Mates
