It is quite remarkable, how the authors of the book manage to introduce historical events in a way that is both informative and fascinating. Unlike some history books, this book steers clear of tediously long lists of dates and instead fleshes out the circumstances of the time and What an absolutely wonderful book and a pleasure to read.
Unlike some history books, this book steers clear of tediously long lists of dates and instead fleshes out the circumstances of the time and characters who set things in motion.
It is quite admirable, how with just a few paragraphs dedicated to each event or "day", as the book sets out to present them , the authors manage to conjure up lively images of events past and really help the reader understand what was going on. I was also pleasantly surprised to constantly find additional information about events I thought I already had a good grasp of. Neither was there ever a page without a picture to succinctly illustrate at least one event in question.
All in all, not only is this one of the best history books I have ever read, it is one of the best popular science books I have read, period. Five out of five stars for a superb effort. The author has also fallen victim to the prejudices of modern times. Having said that this is still an interesting book, although it is probably one to dip in and out of instad of reading from cover to cover. I particularly liked the one page summary of each event, which gave a concise and well researched summary of these events.
