This graphic novel gives an illustrated, broad look at world history. Everything is done with humor, which is what keeps the book going. The biggest issue with this book is that some things have changed since it was written. There is no longer a brontosaurus and we now know that humans are not descended from neanderthal's, they were actually a totally separate branch on the evolutionary tree. ( )

This cartoon history is the outcome of my nine years at Harvard, where I studied mathematics - yes . . . nine years the math department scoffed at my theories!
