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.

I purchased the Kindle version and found it to be very readable. The book is an easy read at 193 pages but it is densely packed with information. As the title of the book implies, it is ideal for someone who has already studied English and world history and wants a brief refresher on some facts that may have been forgotten. The book is less likely to appeal to a first time history student.

This small book gives a reminder, in sufficient detail, to remind one of how much one has forgotten, over the years.

I wanted this book to dip in and out of while I am reading other historical works --- so far it has been very useful .

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.
