reads like a blog--longwinded and tangential; interesting facts and lots of personal anecdotes

A very good overview of the history of paper making, and how it was developed. The detail that the author goes into was appreciated, and the fact that he toured many of the places that are mentioned in the book give you a good insight into the history.
