I hope you find my review helpful.
For me the most interesting part of this book/ series was the reason why each object was selected. Even if you don't agree with some of the objects (the revolver for instance took a while for me to make sense) it is intriguing looking at the range of objects. My interest slants mostly towards architecture but of course that is not the whole story of Human history and invention.
This book is both a good read for its style but also informative. And if you just like to look at the wonderful pictures and dream of visiting all these places, who could blame you?
