Not bad ...for a Text Book

As most Text books go this one was fairly interesting and held my attention. The pictures were very good and I liked the flow of the content. Not worth the price, but I have yet to find a Text Book that is. Not fabulous but not bad....I may even keep it.

Correct Book Needed

Needed book for school. Arrived in great conditions and it was the correct book for school. Very happy with purchase.

Nice, but not what I'd expected!

This is a very good book, information is well laid out and presented--but I didn't realize it was a high school textbook! If I'd known, I probably wouldn't have ordered it.

The perfet good to aquire a good general overview of History

I abhorred History when I was at school. When I've matured and grown more realist I've started to consider the importance of history to try understand what happens around me. I started with The Penguin History of the World" by J.M. Roberts; I don't recommend that book for beginners though it's a good book (I actually hadn't courage enough to finish it, it exists in audiobook too). This book is written by five american scholars which I think gives it a more general scope than others written by a single author. It includes a CD-ROM with the whole book plus a multimedia summary of human history read by a beautiful voice, photographs, Questionnaires, Quizzes, maps and the Complete Webster's New World Dictionary. There's an exclusive webpage for the book with quizzes, add-on reports and links to other history websites, there you can have your questions answered and your exercises corrected (I haven't used it yet though). Sincerely I didn't expect this book to be so good. The CD-ROM is the same for each of the separate books or for the complete version, so, buying the first or second part alone you have the full CD-ROM encompassing all world history.

A fantastic book! I loved it!

No book captures the authentity of world civilizations as this one does. A masterpiece
