Although European history is the focus of this book, it gives a great summary of how the changes in Europe's timeline affected the world at large. Throughout history, travel, trade and war have spread ideas and knowledge from one land to another. This book does a wonderful job of not only giving details of the people, but the religious advances, political renderings, lives of the classes, laws and lifestyles. It provides a valuable resource for those researching the whys and hows of the early Europeans, as well as the truths of where our customs and structures have been shaped by these people and their triumphs and faults. It is not just a superb resource but also an entertaining book that will make you think and see your world in a new way. I believe everyone can benefit from the knowledge within its pages, and will enjoy the time spent reading it.
