Not very useful,
This review is from: A History of Modern Europe: Volume 1 & 2: From the Renaissance to the Present (Paperback)
There's nothing wrong with the way the book is written, but the time period it covers means it doesn't serve much of a purpose as its only able to give a brief overview of points in history. It makes it pretty pointless for an avid reader of history.
It is only useful as a book of reference, and even then the pages are very thin and with a soft cover, its not the most suitable for quick referencing. Wikipedia can easily fulfil the purpose of this book, also much quicker and easier to click through to things you're unfamiliar about.
