The Pillars of the Earth

I do not write about fiction here often. However I do read good fiction and strongly recommend it. What I do stress here is the value of increasing your knowledge and understanding. While nonfiction books are often the fastest and easiest way to learn about success and building true wealth there is a lot to be learned from good fiction as well.

Bestselling author Ken Follett wrote a book 20 years ago called The Pillars of the Earth about 12th century England. From this very well written and engaging novel you will learn a great deal not only about how people lived in those time but also about the palace intrigue, politics of both church and state and the way people’s lives intertwine and lead to outcomes no one can ever predict.

Follett is a master writer who not only spins a wonderful story and is very talented at developing characters and writing dialogue but is also very good at describing the subtleties of human behaviors. This book is not only a very entertaining pager turner it also provides tremendous insight into our European past and how the roots of democracy and a rule of law came to evolve over the tyranny of kings.

Take a break from nonfiction and read an excellent novel – I highly recommend The Pillars of the Earth
