The only history book that I have ever liked reading. Not only does it teach you about history, it teaches you about connections in history and through great writing.

I had to get this book for a class, but it is fairly easy to understand and does give good information. The sources at the end of each chapter are very interesting to read, and give more insight into the area covered in that chapter.

Glad Amazon offers rentals, because this book is the worst history textbook I had to read. Only purchase this if this book is required for class. It needs more organization and categorizing the topics, as it goes all over the place, and runs on and on unnecessarily.
