    How is it that the small continent of Europe, with its rich multiplicity of cultures and traditions, has managed to exert so profound an influence on the rest of the world? Roberts's sweeping and entertaining history notes the paradoxical effect, for good and ill, on everything touched by those Western values that originated in Europe.

    Gillette says: "An example of why so many find History boring."
    "Review of Roberts History of Europe"
    Overall

    I am disappointed with this book because it doesn't deliver a satisfying experience of history. The author does not provide enough examples and names to make the history come alive. He will state some generalities about something and then provide no examples. For instance, he may say that the Germans were having difficulties forming a nation, but gives only passing information about any details that actually took place. Napoleon and others seem like only footnotes that do not require much discussion. I am still listening, but I will stop when I reach the 20th century, I didn't feel I could totally waste my credit, but I hope I can save others the trouble.
