Fantastic for historical revision
on 28 January 2005
Although I shall confess I have not read this book from cover-to-cover, I can say that I have found it extreamly useful. I initially bought the book to help with my History G.C.S.E. exam, and I purchased it with no prior knowledge to what it really contained.
I knew that with all my revision I would not have time to read hundreds of pages on a subject I only need to touch upon lightly, and so I can honestly admit I bought the book primarily for its length. Therefore, I was extreamly happy upon the books arrival when I found out not only was the layout reader-freindly, but the pictures and sources were fantastically helpful.
This is definately a book to read if you're looking for subject material or even if you enjoy a bit of light historical reading. I was certainly suprised!
