Reviews

"[Man] has sifted through Polo's fanciful tale... Polo's observations are compelling, but his omissions are intriguing, and Man rushes to fill them with accounts of his own travels with a guide across the Asian steppes and desert."--Kirkus Reviews
"An enjoyable read that is recommended for anyone with a general interest in the subject."--Library Journal (starred review)
"Great good fun. ... [Man] cultivates the sense of wonder in describing unknown lands and unknown peoples, making it easy to imagine being at the court of Kublai Khan, the most powerful man of the time, and experiencing the wonders of another time and place."--San Francisco Book Review
"Beautifully charted. ... An in-the-footsteps-of-Marco-Polo journey through Europe to China which really makes you feel you are wearing Polo's slippers as you go."--Scotsman (A Best Book of the Year selection)
"I have read everything written on Marco Polo, and John Man's book is, by far, my favorite work on the subject. It's not only an over-due and important historical study, it's an entertaining ride every step of the way."--John Fusco, Creator of the Netflix original series Marco Polo
"Inspiring for travelers."--Lonely Planet
"One could ask for no better storyteller or analyst than John Man."--Simon Sebag Montefiore, author of Jerusalem: The Biography
