Summary

You are on the verge of an adventure unlike anything you’ve ever experienced This book provides a unique perspective on world history that you will not find elsewhere. Some of what is written here fly in the face of convention. The reason is quite simple: We don’t know everything there is to know about our past. Some of the evidence may remain missing forever. It may have been destroyed long ago. All too often the conquering society rewrote the history concerning those they conquered. New regimes erased the records of earlier rulers of whom they disapproved.

Here is a sneak peek of what you'll find in this book:  

  • Prehistory: The Mysterious Unknown
  • The Bible and Egypt
  • Mesopotamia: Part of the Fertile Crescent
  • Indus Valley
  • China & Japan
  • Greece & Middle East
  • Americas
  • Carthage, Rasenna & Roma
  • Middle Ages
  • Renaissance
  • Age of Reason
  • Modern Age
  • And more!

Behind the writing of this book is the intent to provoke the mind into considering the existence of that undiscovered country called “the unknown.” Within that great unknown are things that may shock and dismay the traditionalist. Buy the book now to discover the captivating stories of events that shaped our world history

Great writer great book!!!

Any additional comments?

It's surely tough to write a concise world history. Choosing what to carry concisely is more art than ability and the writer does a very good job selecting the facts and laying them out in a clear way. There's just knowledge to send the user looking for more details in fields they get exciting!!!

The writer did a good job!!!

Any additional comments?

I think the writer did a good job of going into enough details on the major topics to give a good idea of what happened. It will also serve as a springboard for me to dive into certain topics that I find fascinating.
