Uma resenha para gente com pressa

Emma Marriot não se perde em pormenores, mas o essencial está lá :)

As another reader put it, this is pretty much a "this thing happened, then that thing happened" account. Since it obviously never claims to be anything else, I don't see that as a negative. It's a great lightweight read for those who just want to brush up their facts and figures.

A tight 192-page portrait of world history from the earliest civilizations through World War II.

I read these chunks of history slowly over the last month when in between other books. Divided into six eras and regions within the eras, it's easy to follow a particular region through the ages with the page number references making for easy navigating. Each topic or notable development is covered in entries of one paragraph up to a page in length, and a series of simple maps show the growth and spr

Quick read even though the first chapter is quite difficult to take in - as well, it is about thousands of years ago and it is heavy about stuff we don't know or have much interest in today. I love how the quick summaries are very detailed however small, and all give a general idea of each period of time at different places around the world. Big problem, after I finished I remembered more or less one paragraph out of the whole book for it wasn’t very memorable at all. Recommend for those interes ...more

Hakikaten de bir nefeste okunacak, okuyucu hiç yormayan bir dil ve anlatım ile herkese hitap eden bir kitap olmuş.

Gerçi yazarın da önsözde bahsettiği gibi kitabın kapsamına alınamayan hadiseler okuru bir hayli üzüyor.

Özellikle bir Türk olarak Kurtuluş Savaşı'ndan hiç bahsedilmeyip Türkiye'nin sanki Osmanlı'nın devamı gibi algılanmasına yol açacak blr anlatım içermesi içerik konusunda bana şüpheci olmam gerektiğini gösterdi.

Yine de genel kültürün artsın diyorsanız, yarın öbür gün bir yarışmaya

Bilgiler biraz sığ kalmış ancak kitap yine de bir nefeste okunabilecek kadar anlaşılır ve sürükleyici.

A collection of history "tasters". Nothing is very in-depth (like it says on the tin!) - instead the book offers two-to-four pages on a variety of subjects, including a number of ancient civilizations and empires that I'll admit I've never heard of, which can whet the appetite if you want to read more into the subject. Nothing very in-depth.

Gonca Şenay'ın tavsiyesiyle okuduğum kitabı sevdim. Lakin bazı konularda biraz daha detay ve daha çok harita olsaydı sanırım daha da severdim. Ama o Zaman da 'Bir Nefeste Dünya Tarihi' olmazdı değil mi?

This book delivers what it claims to offer; summing up world history from ancient world to WW2 in a slim book. Although some parts of world history, ie. some civilizations or contexts (why or how some events happened), are left out, more cannot be expected from this sized book. A short account of the rise and fall of civilizations. No analysis, no comments; only quick facts.
For people who would like to refresh their general history knowledge, and for those who aren't familiar with some parts of

A concise overview on the history of the world from the beginning of civilizations to the end of WWII. It is a good reference on some forgotten facts without bolting myself down to read serious history books, and it provides information on regions that I am not too familiar with.

There are 6 major sections that focus the history of different continents in different eras:

1- From 3500 BC to 800 BC
2- From 800 BC to AD 450
3- From AD 450 to 1066
4- From 1050 to 1700
5- From 1700 to 1900
6- From 1900 to 1

Nomadic or civilized war/conflict is inevitable! There's always a struggle here and an annexed land there. No wonder war is not outlaw its imminent. Lands are just annexed, colonised, invaded and sometimes abandoned! It seems like everyone has been everywhere! Loved the book.

Harika bir başvuru kitabı. Tarih sevmeyen uzun uzadıya okumaktan sıkılan ama yinede tarihteki önemli olayları bilmek isteyenler için biçilmiş kaftan.
Aklıma takıldıkça geri açıp bakabileceğim bir kaynak.

Considering the breadth of history it covers, the book does a pretty good job. There is no analysis or comment, and it only has space for one view point, but this is allows the author to wiz through with a good global coverage.
The Humpo Show [ Richard ]
The History of the World in Bite-Sized Chunks packs information about historical figures, events and eras of many countries into 178 pages – spanning the earliest civilizations in 3500 BC, to the conclusion of the Second World War in 1945. Emma Marriott covers the likes of Charlemagne, the Ming dynasty, and the Spanish Civil War, to name a few. A compact history book

This is a perfect, compact history book to provide readers with a whistle-stop tour of world events from the early civilizations,

The book is a great “refreshment course” on world history, filling in history gaps. Flows nicely BC - AD - 1000-1900 focusing on each region separately and connecting some together. Non biased and to the point, giving a quick brief history and highlighting main events of each era. By the time I hit page 30 I couldn’t put the book down.

I found the maps useful however wanted an annex of tables and figures summing up the information.

I found the Middle East part missing, it barely mentions the Brit

Livro extremamente apressado. É para quem tem pressa mesmo!!

Até o Capítulo 4, se parece com um resumo de um aluno do ensino médio para passar na prova de recuperação.

O ritmo de apresentação do conteúdo melhora nos dois últimos capítulos, com o foco principal nas revoluções e nas formas modernas de governo. Talvez se o livro todo tivesse a mesma característica dos últimos capítulos mereceria uma nota melhor.

Boa leitura para quem não gosta de história, mas extremamente rasa para um apreciador, me

It was okay to read, but seemed not so interesting (and I love History) You need to read it in "bite sized chunks" to avoid becoming a bit bored, which I did not do.

This is literally the world history in bite chunks. From the first empires and first civilization to the end of WW II and the great depressions, it describe what happened around 5 areas of the world (Europe, Americas, Oceania, Middle East and Far East) in 2-3 pages.

The good side is it is easy to read because basically each chapter is a minuscule summary of what happened in history. So don't expect any depth. It is perfect for someone who likes history but doesn't really want to read a long, ted

I ended up reading this cover to cover to a sick friend - which isn't really the best way to read it, as it's list-like and better dipped into. And hard to hold it all in mind, when jumping from place to place. But I feel it's helped me put the scraps of history I know into a better context in relation to the vast histories I don't know. I know I'll revisit it at later times to cement things. And I've already answered a couple of quiz questions with the knowledge it's given me!

I needed to read such a book, it added valuable knowledge.

Suggestions;

Chapters to be region instead of era would make the read and understanding easier.

Add more information to the historic origins of words and names (Example: the origin of the word slave came from the Slavs who were captured by the vikings and sold).

This one delivers its promise: Six or seven sentences about every nation in history. It is a good start to learn world history, it is also a good perspective from which to see the big picture, which nation compared to other nations in their age, or which big events led to which others. You can take it from here to learn about the events in detail, with a clear idea of the whole.

Does exactly as the title suggests - powers through world history from prehistoric times to the end of World War II. Doesn't just focus on European and US history, with a good look at all regions of the world.
