This is an excellent reference book to have. I learned a great deal reading random entries. I am choosing to place this on the read shelf as it is a reference book as compared to a novel. I don't feel I will ever be truely done reading this as I will be going back to it again and again to lead me off in different directions about various subject on world history.

Excellent book that gives you an overview of major events in history. It is strongly recommended as a "jumping off point" for those interested in history. Great desk reference.
