I read this book for Humanities class, and so that already gives it a bad start. It was jam-packed with information. It was tedious to read through it all, interesting as it was. If you like this kinda stuff it's a good read, but know that it's not 100% accurate.

It was a very easy to understand even though at times I found myself looking up some of the words he used to describe something but other than that it's easy and kind of fun to read. The author summarized past human spirit until present human spirit very clearly.

I feel as if I'm going through World History all over again as we talk about the art of different time periods.
