    The single most informative book I've ever read I feel like I've learned a lot from this than my degree in International Relations While I'm already forgetting most of the thousands upon thousands of specific facts mentioned I feel like it's provided a good sense of scale context and continuity for other things I learn in future

    History of the world in about 1200 pages That's some achievement Although this size means you rarely take the foot off the gas and things keep passing by so uickly My only small gripe is with the chapter concerning WW2 that had a small amount of moralizing in it but that is to be expected Otherwise a fantastic overview and really good job b
