At best, so so, but I suppose it is like much more legitimate history which is full of titillating tales, most of which are passed down by writers and historians trying to make a book exciting and...well.

Things you probably often wondered buy had no way of knowing. Interesting to know that societies long ago were just as raunchy as they are today. Good read.
