Format: Hardcover
Good for a overview but lacking in dates and genealogies,ie Plantagenets. No good for British History nor for finding Inventors, Explorers or Scientists

Hadn't come across this series before this book, but if this one is anything to go by then the others may be worth a little perusal.
I enjoy my history and going through the book I'd think " But what about such and such?" But the book isn't meant to be an encylopedia, It's more of a comprehensive collection of cramer notes to take you off on further reading.
There are some glaring omissions, both from a geographical and time standpoint. But then there also was when we were learning these things for the first time. Though that's what bookshops, libraries and the internet are for; to fill in those gaps and help you understand. If we don't learn from the past we're doomed to repeat those self same mistakes.

Yes brings back alot of those things that you knew but had filed away.

Just right for refreashing the mind for those quiz questions you need to work out.
