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.
