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.

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.

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!

I am so proud that I got this book because I really love to listen Ancient History. This book is nicely narrated and it gives me more urge to discover many things in the past. So lovely and highly appreciated work from the author!
