From the author of the bestselling The Dangerous Book for Boys  He was born Temujin, the son of a khan, raised in a clan of hunters migrating across the rugged steppe. Temujin’s young life was shaped by a series of brutal acts: the betrayal of his father by a neighboring tribe and the abandonment of his entire family, cruelly left to die on the harsh plain. But Temujin endured—and from that moment on, he was driven by a singular fury: to survive in the face of death, to kill before being killed, and to conquer enemies who could come without warning from beyond the horizon. Through a series of courageous raids against the Tartars, Temujin’s legend grew. And so did the challenges he faced—from the machinations of a Chinese ambassador to the brutal abduction of his young wife, Borte. Blessed with ferocious courage, it was the young warrior’s ability to learn, to imagine, and to judge the hearts of others that propelled him to greater and greater power. Until Temujin was chasing a vision: to unite many tribes into one, to make the earth tremble under the hoofbeats of a thousand warhorses, to subject unknown nations and even empires to his will.From the Hardcover edition.

2.0 Genghis: Birth of an Empire
This is an action filled tale about Genghis Kahn. It is cinematic in tone, and by that I mean it is plot oriented, with one exciting thing after another happening in rapid succession. I could accept the violence when I felt it was motivated by the need to either kill or be killed; I could accept it ...

Update-I passed this book to one of my employees. He does NOT read for enjoyment. I promised him he would love this book so he said he would give it a try. Yesterday, I saw him with book 2 and asked him what was up. His explanation- "I read book 1 every night for the past week and all weekend long"....
