I guess because I never took History, I got more out of this book than I did the rest in the series. Obviously, the content skews more towards European history - I would've liked to see a little more on other parts of the world.
This is a neat little book that is very succinct but contains enough detail to be very interesting and informative. It makes me think that I was not taught history very well at school. It really is interesting but at school it really was boring.
