Concise and elegantly written non-fiction books and audiobooks help you learn the core subject matter in 20% of the time that it takes to read a typical book. Life is short, so explore a multitude of fascinating historical, biographical, scientific, political, and financial topics in only an hour each.

I know a little about Genghis Khan, but all I knew about his grandson Kublai Khan was from learning Samuel Taylor Coleridge's poem at school. 

As a test of the publisher's claims, I limited myself to just one hour for this book and found it clearly written and informative. 

I had no idea, for example, that Kublai Khan conquered Southern China, Korea, and half of Southeast Asia, or that although he was born a Tengrist, believing in shamanism and nature gods, he became a master of Tibetan Buddhism.

His empire lasted over four hundred years, and thrived under his administration. Kublai Khan did much to develop trade, education and scientific understanding. 

If you would like to learn more but have limited time, these short books seem like a useful way to do it.
