This book provides a three-page summary of 50 distinct days that changed the course of history, starting in 480 B.C.E. and ending with the attack on the World Exchange Towers in 2001.

It is the non-fiction equivalent of a series of short stories. Each item is well presented and its significance clearly shown. The events were not linked together in any overall themes. The book is a sampler of history that could encourage readers to get more information on the event(s) that interest them. ( )
