Yes, I actually read this entire thing. It was pretty good, though a lot of things I thought were more important in the world-historical process (like feudalism, the Renaissance) seemed glossed over. It always frustrates me when textbooks spend a few pages on thousands of years of history but somehow save 40-50 for less than 200. Oh well. It did a good job preparing for the AP test. I never want to read it again, though.
