    It was a good read (pun intended), but I felt as if there was not a lot of information given. However, it did get me curious enough to find more books that detailed Korea's history from the Mongolian time through current events. I'd say if you just want some brief background knowledge about Korea, this is the book for you. It was a good read (pun intended), but I felt as if there was not a lot of information given.

    Korea has been in the unenviable position of being a small country in the middle, a gateway to other countries or the Yellow Sea; or a way to control the trade of surrounding small countries and islands around the Pacific Ocean.  It is very interesting to learn that Japan (in 1910)  annexed Korea to the point that they tried to assimilate the Korean culture into their own, hoping to cause the unique Korean culture to disappear.  Thanks to the author for the explanation of Korean Buddhism, Confuci Korea has been in the unenviable position of being a small country in the middle, a gateway to other countries or the Yellow Sea; or a way to control the trade of surrounding small countries and islands around the Pacific Ocean.  It is very interesting to learn that Japan (in 1910)  annexed Korea to the point that they tried to assimilate the Korean culture into their own, hoping to cause the unique Korean culture to disappear.  Thanks to the author for the explanation of Korean Buddhism, Confucianism and ancestor worship.  The author makes a point of explaining that ancestor worship is not seen as a contradiction to other faiths, even Christianity.  The way ancestor worship is explained shows that the current generation recognizes the contributions of their forefathers and foremothers, rather than actually worship them. I particularly appreciated the careful explanation of the woes of the country since WWII.  One can hope that the country will once again be unified but with a communist North and a capitalistic South, it doesn't look very likely.

    If you aren’t sure about the evolution of South Korea or how North Korea got to be such a mess, this is a good book. It’s short, concise, and very much, to the point. I really didn’t know that of Japan, China, and Korea, Korea was really the leading civilization. If you aren’t sure why Korea might harbor ill will towards Japan, you should read this book. If you aren’t completely sure why Korea would be friends with China, you should read this book. I really liked the large print and the ability If you aren’t sure about the evolution of South Korea or how North Korea got to be such a mess, this is a good book.

    Maybe not “captivating” as suggested in the description, but definitely interesting. Especially noteworthy is the fact that the Dharani Sutra (oldest printed text in the world) was found in the Bulguksa temple complex in South Korea.

    There's the amazing industrialization, and the well-being of the people, in the south compared to the north. There's the amazing industrialization, and the well-being of the people, in the south compared to the north.

    Easy Easy reading for such a rich and complicated sad history with a partial happy ending. The complete happy ending will be when both Koreas reunites.

    Not spectacular, but I read these books because they are short and can give me a quick overview of the topic. I was mostly interested in 20th century Korean history and learned a lot.

    First of all, I am not a historian, which is why I chose to read this book. Its short length and variety of topics covered is good for someone like me who has some time to kill but doesn't have the energy for anything too academic. However, because I am not a historian, the inaccuracies I noticed were enough to make me mistrust the content of the rest of the book. For example, ancient Koreans are said to have drank sake and had a similar language to Japonic peoples, which is very questionable. Th First of all, I am not a historian, which is why I chose to read this book. Its short length and variety of topics covered is good for someone like me who has some time to kill but doesn't have the energy for anything too academic. However, because I am not a historian, the inaccuracies I noticed were enough to make me mistrust the content of the rest of the book. For example, ancient Koreans are said to have drank sake and had a similar language to Japonic peoples, which is very questionable. There is mention of a a city called "Aswan" located "east of Seoul." (They meant Asan, which is south of Seoul--is it that difficult to look at a map? That city still exists, after all.) Comfort women are mentioned under the section for World War I. And so on. In addition to the inaccuracies, the timeline of events in the book tends to jump all over the place. This is a problem especially in the last chapters of the book. Also, the last pages start to feel like they were written by a totally different author, perhaps a high school student. It is also disappointing that recent events such as the Sewol ferry tragedy were skipped because they really did have an effect on South Korea's political and social discourse today. Actually, there is little to no discussion of modern Korean values and culture, save for a blurb about the Hallyu wave--but even that section has a sentence structured in a way that suggests YouTube existed in 1999. I can understand why those sorts of topics were left out, but it's still a missed opportunity. Overall, this book is good for someone who knows almost nothing about Korea, but almost everything needs to be taken with a grain of salt. This book could be really great if it was reviewed and edited by experts; the author has the right idea of which topics to cover and how to pace the narrative, but the mistakes are glaring. It reads like a first draft.
