I'm not sure I agree with the editors about which events are the most significant in history, but they certainly were the most newsworthy. Fine photos of all kinds.

It's pretty much what you'd expect-- a big picture book of major events. It tries to cover so much there's no depth, but it's decent surface covering of various historical incidents.

It's not really a read so much as a skim through. Fluff writing but some very nice pictures.

The same as the other books that relate to this subject in a nutshell really. The same stories and same information, just told by another person with their own point of view. I respect all sides of the same story, even if the story has been told a hundred thousand times. But aren't we all guilty of telling a story that someone else has told before? That's where the structure of social life immerses from. It flows through all of us so that we can all know and be who we are, human.

Of all important

We hear so much about recent history, but this gives a great perspective on what events led to the events of today...things we don't even think of...and, as always, great photography.

I haven't met a book in this series I didn't like. A super condensed history lesson of the last 1000 years. Plus I'm a sucker for an oversized book chock full of glossy photos.
