As history textbooks go, it wasn't terrible. I liked the quotations at the beginning of each chapter. It gave a good scope, but the tone could have been more engaging. The organization was interesting- flat out history in yearly chunks, followed by several chapters of overview on the business, the intellectual movements, of the larger sections of time.
