    Are you sure that electro shock treatment is not needed, I think it has become legal again and Axiom will be the new Jack Nicholson.

    Almost all historians hope to offer their readers a different view but few historians could, and perhaps fewer still would, dare to write a new history of the world. Peter Frankopan, like many of the adventurers he documents, began as a young man with a map and has done what he set out to do.
