1491: A book to blow your mind 

I've been waiting for this book, 1491, to come out ver since I read an abreviated version of it in the Atlantic Monthly about four years ago. When I first read that article I was in complete shock. The amazon rain forest a creation of man--the population of America in 1491 higher than that of Europe--a more equal society than europe--the genetic engineering of maze...!

The book makes me want to switch from Ancient Rome and Greece in my academic specilization to instead studying this amazing revision of history.
