This is an astonishing book. As described it is intended for children but don't allow that to put you off. I am 33 and I loved every page. If you are a keen student of history this is probably not for you as the scale and scope of the text means that huge topics are covered in just a few pages. If on the other hand you want a broad overview of the known human history of the world this provides it. I am using the book to create a skeleton of topics that intend to investigate further with more detailed texts and the pace and meter of this book are spot on in my opinion.

Written for children to explain the history of the world, while the style is a little arcane, it is surprisingly gripping and explains complex ideas and major historical events with beautiful clarity.

Excellent little book for anyone either studying history or interested in ut.
Really good introduction to thinking about the past and how it impacts on today.
Easily readable.

Excellent book - I have The Story of Art but this was a surprising little gem I found in the library and wanted to buy a copy to save for when my granddaughter is old enough - it is a good start for anyone interested in world history

If you don't have time to read lots of books on world history, just read this one.
