It is an extremely light read. I found myself reading far ahead of the assigned chapters, simply because I was enjoying myself. The illustrations are humorous, though sometimes silly, especially for a text book.
The light reading can also be problematic. I found myself referring to other resources for a full understanding, because the author did not cover (I felt) enough ground on most subjects, leaving me without only a surface understanding of the concepts.
This book would be better suited to a high school class, rather than a serious, college course.
Overall, the text was refreshingly enjoyable, though oftentimes fell short.
I would recommend it! It's pretty nice to get a foundation on some fairly important history. It's relative to other important facts in history or in life.
