LOVE Rick Steves' books and this is no exception. Forget your world history lessons back in school? Don't worry - this is a great book that puts it all in perspective in little lessons that are easy and fun to read. Great to read on the plane on your way to Europe!
Rick Steves' explanations make history and art museums funny and interesting for those who think it's dry and boring. For those of us who love history and art museums, he reminds us of interesting facts that we'd learned in school but in our old age we've forgotten.
