History as a sumptuous dessert.,
This review is from: Heroes of History: A Brief History of Civilization from Ancient Times to the Dawn of the Modern Age (Hardcover)
This highly readable book of history is a group of essays written by renowned historian Will Durant. This book is more than a synopsis of his earlier, well-known series written with his wife Ariel.
This makes excellent reading for the would-be history-buff or for someone who wants to understand how the human race has gotten to the point it's at today.
I cannot emphasize enough how easy-to-read this text is and, yet, the details that bring history alive have not been boiled down into pablum.
