Truly a fine book

The best thing of all about this book is that it is a true synthesis, placing the events of the past two and a half centuries against a backdrop of control and chaos, isolation and often forced opening up. Highly recommended as a foundation text for World history since the earliest times.

Worth listening

You can learn a lot of history points from this book.I think it is a shame that Americans in general seem to know so little about their own history, probably because they were bored to death in their history classes, with terrible textbooks. It is extremely important these days for us to know as much about this subject as possible, and Adam Brown telling of it is gripping.

Captivating and Thought-Provoking!

That is, I am skeptical about most conspiracy theories but I am prepared to believe them if the evidence is presented in a reasonably convincing way. This book is Captivating and Thought-Provoking! I Highly recommend it to "Truth Seekers" everywhere. Loved it!

Enjoyed

This is how American history was meant to be shared and it's an important book for the age we find ourselves in, Especially as we become frustrated with the present and begin to think it can't get any worse. Enjoy!

Educational and empowering

This is an entertaining listening that is both educational and empowering. There are not many well-written, non-boring English sources of World history but I'd definitely say that this is one of them.

Nice book

This is exactly what I needed. I needed something that would give me a basis for history study. I read a chapter to my daughter a day and we dig deeper off that through google or youtube videos on each chapter. It's fantastic!

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.

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.
