Regardless of the author's stated intentions, this is not written for a general audience. The information is interesting, but with each statement followed by a long discussion of what historians A, B, C, ... had to say on the subject, and how that might have varied between city and rural populations, as well as between North and South Germany, you begin to wish he had never mentioned the topic. Abandoned after 90 pages (although over twenty of those were endnotes, so actual pages read were fewer). As I was about to start the third chapter, I realized that 40 pages of the same, this time about the sizes of people, which had already been touched on in the previous chapter, was more than I could face.
