This was a great research book, from the first humans on Earth to great civilizations like Egypt, Greece and Rome. It was beautifully illustrated and written, I've never read an encyclopedia as fast! :)However I did not agree to the first few chapters and the theory, I don't think it should be inclouded- at all... Though I loved Jane Bingham's style (how she wrote everything in a fun, cool way but still gave plenty of useful info). The Usborne illustration company did it again :) It made me see the ancient world in a much clearer light, young people and adults will see this book as a good get-away from the modern world, into something that they've never imagined existed! I'd recommend to teachers for classroom social studies and history use or for people and students in need for good research themes! Fun and a fast read, I was happy to see it on GoodReads where it deserves to be! Thank you Usburne for yet another great book from your great company!

Mehran Yes a very informative book, but I do not agree with you about your comment over first chapters. I think those chapters were necessary because the book is " encyclopedia of WORLD history" not only HUMAN history. well whenever i am confused about any history topic I simply open this book and I'm no more confused...
