What the community says about The History Book (Big Ideas Simply Explained)
- "I was a poor student in school, and history was my worst subject. This book as me lapping up what you couldn't have shoved down my throat as a youngster. Sure, I've matured some toward learning (now in my 60s), and the Kindle is way more comfotable and convenient than the heavy, awkward textbooks we had then, but these authors and organizers deserve some big-time credit for this work way beyond that. This is writing that doesn't just impart information; it gives you the sense of almost being there. Five stars allthe way! -"

in What are the best history books"Most history books are geared toward a certain era or geographical location, so it is difficult to find one definitive book that covers as much of world history as possible. The History Book attempts to subvert the assumption that all of human history cannot be contained in one book. Starting from the beginning of civilization and going all the way to present day, The History Book gives a breakdown of important historical events using accessible language."
