This book was a thumbnail sketch. Each chapter was excessively short, and contained only a paragraph or two more than the average public school history book. Most of the events covered are covered far more in depth by the one hour or longer documentaries on the same subject, or the actual event history books. Good if you just want a reminder, or a refresher course in a few events. Nothing new here. ( )
