This book is like a box of chocolates. You can eat the whole thing at a sitting, or you can nibble from time to time. Either way, you enjoy what you've consumed.

Written in short blurbs, this book is a quick and easy read for anyone. Even if you don't like history, this is quite an interesting book and sheds some interesting light on the happenings of the past. If they had taught this stuff in school, I know I would have been a lot more interested in history! The book is set up in chronological chapters and has a bit of everything. I found myself not wanting to put the book down. One side comment - the book seems to be rushed at the end - I think they could have easily put in quite a few more pages about more recent history.
