Interesting. I learnt a lot of new things, and read a great deal that I didn't know.
Some chapters I found very hard to follow and understand, perhaps due to my lack of knowledge on some issues. But others were much easier to read.
Only read some chapters as used at university to study history.

This was a very informative book on events that shaped the world after 1945. It was great for me to learn about things that have happened in the recent history which have helped shape what is going on in the world right now. (Because this book has so many topics--there were certainly some that interested me more then others. Read what you are interested in. . .skip what bores you--but it is certainly worth the effort!)
I decided to add this to my 'ongoing' shelf since it will continue to be a work in progress to get this finished. I'll finish it one day as it's very interesting - and since I own it I can afford to go through it slowly.

I've spent years on this book, and although it's a lot to absorb, it's really helped me understand how the world has come to be the way it is today. I'm gonna finish it, I swear.

This excellent book explains clearly the historical contexts for many current world events and relationships between countries.
