I don't usually read textbooks in my free time, or count them as part of my reading total, but I read this one as part of a Coursera course. I found it to be surprisingly good, and well above average in terms of quality. I've always been interested in history, and am happy to say I learned quite a bit from this book. For casual use, I wouldn't recommend it, but if you're taking a class that requires or even just recommends it, then you can be glad to have one of the better choices out there, in my experience. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0393934942, Paperback)

The most global approach to world history, now more streamlined and accessible.

Worlds Together, Worlds Apart is organized around major world history stories and themes: the emergence of cities, the building of the Silk Road, the spread of major religions, the spread of the Black Death, the Age of Exploration, alternatives to 19th-century capitalism, the rise of modern nation-states and empires, and more. In the Third Edition, the text has been compressed and streamlined to heighten emphasis on world history stories and themes throughout.
