Some of the editorial reviews have absolutely nothing to do with this book. LOL - please don't get confused by the reviews talking about some books being great for pre-k.
This is a snapshot of some of the most important events and people in human history. Many of the articles are about people and events I'd never heard of. And those I had heard of, were filled with fascinating tidbits of information that made history come alive.
Science, art, invention, polictics, and pop-culture are all included.
The book leaves you feeling like you understand a bit more about how we got where we are today, and where we might be going.
It's still a good book, considering the idea to work on a single voulme, but I expect someday a further edition with two or three volumes explaining in much more rich details the facts.
