Most of the comments are "great book" about "important events". Well, if the only important events in the world were Euro-American. Pretty one-sided and while a good read, calling it "History's Greatest Hits" shows the western prejudice. Of the 37 events described, one concerned Russia, two Japan (both in the context of WWII), and one Vietnam (again, only because of the US involvement). There are so many events of significance to cull, yet the author called these 37 the "greatest" - sad commentary.
