Anyone read this book yet? Accidentally saw this book in the medical section of the book store and it seemed interesting. Person of focus is Leonardo Fioravanti.

I'm sure it's an entertaining book. My often-raised objection is over who publishes the book, in this case it's National Geographic. I have rarely found a book that was worthwhile for my own interest that was mainstream! Everything that's popular, or well-known in the media, any knowledge, in my experience, is watered-down version of the truth, yes, some aspects interesting, but mostly from an occult point of view always misleading, or part of "misinformation".

I either read original manuscripts, or lesser known works, or authors. They tend to provide information that's useful for me. That's just my take.
