I was skeptical that the authors could find enough information in timelines to fill 200+ pages, but I was pleasantly surprised at how they tied in graphical representations of time with the philosophy and current events of the time period, from Biblical chronology to the Cold War. ( )

I didn't finish this. It's not bad, but about half way through I decided I didn't really care.

The illustrations are lovely. The text seems to keep repeating more or less the same thing, just with different names. It's also too big and heavy for comfortable reading.

I was reading the German edition. Some of my difficulties could have been due to the translation. ( )
