review 1: Solid but not spectacular. I would give it 2 1/2 stars if goodreads allowed that sort of thing. This basically felt like reading my 9th grade World Civ textbook, only more pared down. I didn't really learn anything new except a few facts on the spread of Islam in the Dark Ages and the Cultural Revolution in China. Communists and Socialists may want to look elsewhere, as the book takes a pretty strong editorial stance against those forms of governments.
review 2: This is THE history book everyone should read! It does exactly as its title implies, it's a brilliant, short history of the world and it is full of information. It touches on nearly all subjects, continents, peoples, leaders, events, etc... that everyone should know about, but it does so in an easy, li
... morekeable way, not like some stodgy, professor who has been teaching/droning history for years. This book is a great introduction to the world: it educates and entertains! less

very good book, easy, fast and full of information.
World history in 165 pages. Works for me.
History: only fun and interesting!
