    1. Henry Martin says:
      A fairly breezy fly by look at the evolution of mankind beginning with the early days when humans roamed the grasslands of Africa, then jumping to the ice age, immediately followed by the establishment of first societies and the transition to farming From that point on, the path is concise, covering the major and only the major with a capital M developments in humanity Since the subject topic is so vast, it is understandable that a feat of this magnitude cannot be accomplished in a single volum [...]

    2. Corinne says:
      What this book is, simply, is a book about the history of humanity, from our first societies until the present day It focuses on major themes and turning points that have changed things so drastically that civilization was never the same From the Ice Age to the first farmers, the history of weaponry and wars, food production, trade and communication, revolutions and explorations Mankind reads chronologically but draws grand comparisons It s a very colorful volume, visually, the text is very acce [...]

    3. Jennifer Bieniek says:
      Can t get enough of this book The story itself plus the sidebars are truly fascinating A must have for any history buff

    4. Andi says:
      This is our story, our legacy After I read this book, I realize that we do not inherit our civilization from our ancestor, unless we borrow it from our children.

    5. Al Bokolor says:
      Excellent easy to follow history book with lots of interesting side bars.

    6. Ariel Lynn says:
      I think this book was a really fantastic undertaking from The Big Bang up until recent years major advances That said, I wish they had taken care to make sure that they edited it properly took the time to double check everything.Some issues I found w this book include In some instances, there are charts alongside the text In at least one or two instances, these sources of information don t match For example, at one point, the text says 100 million people were killed by the plague which sounds p [...]

    7. Alexfunghi says:
      I like this book, because I like reading history book as if it is a extra extra long story book, about the past Why do I want to know about the past To learn from mistakes people had made through all those centuries and decades, and also see how people changed from apes to Neanderthals, to modern human beings, and as well as how Earth changed and cause huge changes from a split second to cause humans to be successful Its complicated and there are many examples, one of those examples are if ther [...]

    8. Uluwehi Hopkins says:
      This is a good book for world history classes in which you need to cover all of human history in just a few weeks It is a very easy read, and insets smaller stories here and there that help give context to the bigger story being told However, it was badly edited there are a lot of typos as well as some factual errors It also plays right into the western dominance of academia by only paying attention to European and American histories There s some of Asia in there, but only China, Japan, and the [...]

    9. Timothy Culp says:
      This sat on my bookshelf for a long time because I had watched the mini series on the History Channel I would have rated it 5 except there where numerous typographical errors in the text and the transition of the sections were sometimes haphazard The layout also did not work well reading on my phone or tablet That aside, what I like about the book is it s a look at history based on how technology and advances in science affected mankind s evolution Most history books only talk about how people c [...]

    10. John Pyrce says:
      A breezy overview of all of human history A short read, with some things I didn t know Obviously with the scope of the subject there is a great deal of editorial judgement in deciding what to include and what not to include Some profiles are for extremely minor characters There are some notable omissions, like all of the religious wars in Europe I didn t realize how cold Europe was in the Ice Ages the same as modern day Antartica Fun and fast, but maybe the author is a bit religious.

    11. Tara says:
      I have a confession to make I think I ve forgotten about 95% of all the information I learned during history classes in school That s why I decided to read this book, but it didn t help much The chapters are somewhat disjointed and rely on previous knowledge of the subject I think this book is definitely better than others covering the same broad scope of history, but it wasn t a good fit for me.

    12. Jo * Smut-Dickted * says:
      This is a fascinating series running currently on The History Channel My daughter and I are addicted The book is a great companion and we ve been reading pieces as we go along It provides depth to what is shown in the series and it s the kind of book that you can pick up and read parts without any issue There are lots of pictures It is not dry at all and was a great purchase

    13. Eric Zulueta says:
      A very interesting and quite readable book on the history of the world The author follows the same tact as the tv series with information in the form of sidebars thrown inThe book deals with links between events so those looking for huge sections dealing with the world wars will be sorely disappointed Highly recommended

    14. Carina says:
      I watched the series then read the book The book does a better job at explaining the historical significance of the side stories.



    15. Jbondandrews says:
      I would have given this book stars but in my opinion you can not equate the fall of Constantinople with 9 11 nor to be so causal about rape and the boo was too American in its overall slant.
