I will correctly review this later with the score I got on the test
Just finished Volume 1 of this survey of the history of western civilization. It is a textbook, so is more of a superficial and sweeping overview than an in-depth analysis. However, I am finding it fascinating. On to Volume 2.
I'm a sophomore in high school talking an AP Euro Test & this book is very high-level and hard to understand. Especially for me!
I read most of this for history class, and I didn't really like it. In my opinion, it was a bit boring, but that's just me. :)
