Good overview

This book won't make you an expert in specific events in history, but it will definitely give you a good overview, which is exactly what I was looking for.

Beautiful, comprehensive, and interesting.

This book follows the history of the world through a modern lens - and tells the stories of across the world, not just western civilization.

Informative

When I was kid, I really wanted to know what happened during and after the wars including World War 1 and 2. Well, this book has discussed the things I should know. Easy to comprehend.

I like it as my reference

My mom bought me a lot of history books but I guess this one is the best. This audio book is so exciting to listen to so I never feel bored. Hope to listen more books from this author.

Cool and enjoyable

This history book is one of the coolest book I have ever listened to. It's very enjoyable and not painful to the ears. I will listen to this book again.

Great reference

I should say that this book would be of particular interest for families who wish to give growing children a broader perspective and idea of the world and the events they should know. I also found it helpful for myself: I read a lot of history books both broad sweeps covering nations or regions, as well as more focused studies. This book is a handy guide for getting a sense for topics and regions which I don't know much about, and decide where I might want to focus in my further listening. Great reference for me.

I am liking history now.

I am not into history books but when I listened to this book, I learned so many facts that I should have learned before. This so exciting and thought-provoking. I regret that I didn't enjoy history books before.

Good

Although I enjoy listening about history and even subscribe to history magazines for fun, I like specific details, and sometimes when listening to something, feel like I've not listened enough. Anyway, this helpful.

Perfect!

This is indeed perfect to learn Native American and other important histories out there. This book has a great overview of what really happened before and the facts that we need to know in order to understand.
