I started reading this book but then stopped as I found out that this author starts making outrageous claims, e.g., Chinese navigating around Greenland. While the focus of the advanced state of China in the 13rd century may be well taken for nowadays Eurocentrics the ill-supported speculations on Chinese travels seriously tarnish the book.
