    Loving this book! I'm currently taking a Coursea free online World History class through Princeton University. This is the text book for the class. Much fun for history lovers like me. BTW, there are currently 70,000 people enrolled in the class. Loving this book! I'm currently taking a Coursea free online World History class through Princeton University.

    I don't usually read textbooks in my free time, or count them as part of my reading total, but I read this one as part of a Coursera course. I found it to be surprisingly good, and well above average in terms of quality. I've always been interested in history, and am happy to say I learned quite a bit from this book. For casual use, I wouldn't recommend it, but if you're taking a class that requires or even just recommends it, then you can be glad to have one of the better choices out there, in I don't usually read textbooks in my free time, or count them as part of my reading total, but I read this one as part of a Coursera course.

    Unsatisfying. To me it read much more like an A-Level textbook that one suitable for undergraduate study. Perhaps it's the broad sweeping nature of the coverage. The lack of inline citations and counter arguments also left me exasperated. It was only useful as an end in itself, not as a jumping off point, which is what I would expect of an academic core text.

    I liked this book, it was simple, well organized and very direct. I kind of wish there was more attention to pop culture and regular lifestyles, but it's a textbook, it does it's job and gets you interested and touches on the big issues. I guess that's enough. Good book, I'd recommend it to most AP history classes. I liked this book, it was simple, well organized and very direct.

    This is the first textbook for a class that I've read in its entirety. To be fair, for most of my schooling we were given chapters to read. This is an excellent world history book, written in an engaging style. There are lots of illustrations, photos and maps. It was worth the $75 used I had to pay for it.

    It's a textbook, so don't expect it to be exciting. However, it gives a great overview of the history of the past 800 years or so. I've never taken modern world history, just ancient civilizations and US history, so I certainly learned quite a bit from this book. The pages are the right length to keep you from getting overwhelmed, and the primary sources really put you there to help you understand things from a past perspective.

    I read (the majority of) this textbook for my university World History course (first year of History bachelor). I liked the course overall and this book as well! It comes with a handy online training program with questions on each chapter to keep you up-to-date on the readings! In the later chapters, the western point of view came more to the surface for me and it was really noticeable that the author favoured the story from the generally dominant western perspective, which was a real bummer to I read (the majority of) this textbook for my university World History course (first year of History bachelor).

    I was not a history student. But I also can say that it is the only textbook that I have read for fun even after I finished its lecture in my life. I don’t think it’s much detailed whereas it gives an outlook to each historically important piece of events/people/places.
