An Interesting Book,
This review is from: The New Penguin History of the World (Hardcover)
The New Penguin History of the World by J.M. Roberts is an interesting book spanning the whole period of human civilisation from pre-history to the modern day. It is a work worth perservering with because although it starts in my opinion quite slowly it is worth the effort to complete. It is on the whole well-written and detailed although because it is a one volume history of the world it cannot cover everything. All in all though it is a very good book.
