I own a copy

This book is criminally under utilized. I found it on some parents coffee table in college and have searched many years for it since. It is a brilliant approach towards visualizing history, an often daunting subject to approach.

Each page is divided into columns. History & Politics, Literature & Theater, Religion Philosophy Learning, Visual Arts, Music, Science Technology Growth, and Daily Life. Each year gets a short listing of the most prominent events and/or achievements of that time.

As a musician it helps me better picture the world at the time when I can relate it to a timeline I am more familiar with.

A must buy for any parent looking to educate their kids in the most effective way possible.
