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 1945

Such a handy little book that I know I will read it again later. I read it with another Visual Reference Guides on World History (ISBN 978-1-4351-3895-7) that serves as a supplementary material should I want to learn more about facts on any particular event.
