This book is of excellent quality with good pictures. It covers a wide range of historical information in very condensed form. Apart from quick reference, it is more suited to children (of any age) than anyone researching in depth.

I did not find the CD of any use - it only contains some clip art.

4.0 out of 5 stars Useful and educational 6 Feb. 2014
By Nike's mom - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I like DK books because the photos are so good, and the kids will not grow out of the books because of that & adults can enjoy them because of that. The photos make it a primary source & there is room for the kids & adults to arrive at one's own conclusions and imagine the past more clearly without having to go to any museum (or go to one, after being inspired). I bought this particular book, Mesopotamia, because my 6th grader son had a social studies project to do on Mesopotamia. The book supplemented his textbook well, and illustrated certain aspects of their civilization better. It puts together well the various civilizations existed in the area & clarifies how things evolved & how people lived.
5.0 out of 5 stars an unusual book 22 Aug. 2015
By Renato Baserga - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
It is really not a book, but an illustrated presentation of Mesopotamia from the beginning (9000 BCE?) to about 1300 BC, which was the time Mesopotamia flourished . The chosen figures are outstanding and they illustrate Mesopotamia better than many words. The format is no good for serious students, but this is a very, very good rendition and for what is worth it is five stars. I never regretted reading it.

We used this book extensively for our unit study on Mesopotamia. It is interesting, loaded with tons of beautiful images, and pretty thorough in its presentation of the information. This won't work as the only text used for a unit study, but its awesome when partnered with other books.

4.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding! 10 April 2012
By JediPos - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
The book took control of my mind when ever I was reading it, and each time I put it down it left me wanting more. The pictures are excellent and make it easy for the reader to visualize the locations and objects, as opposed to just reading an un-illustrated documentary. The only need for improvement is on the amount of information the books gives; it gives neat little facts you wouldn't normally be aware of, and should one decide they would like to learn more, there are plenty of books on the subject of Mesopotamia.

It's okay. I was hoping for more detailed coverage, though. It is pleasant to look at for a general idea of Mesopotamia.
