A wonderful history book for not only children but also adults. The author is a great storyteller; juicy elements were extracted delicately. The book simply draws readers attention and raises interest towards history.
Perfect bedside storybook for kids.
Easy to read. The narration is good too. It is an ideal book to arise the interest of ones' in history.
Even though the book was originally targeted to children, it is also a good read for adults who want to have a better understanding in the history of the world.
The only "minus" of the book is not comprehensive and extensive enough. Probably because the area of interests may have changed given the book was written long time ago!...Continua
I thoroughly enjoyed this. Gombrich has a wonderful authorial voice. It's a book written for children, yes, but it's still informative and pleasant reading for an adult.
Fabulous, brilliant, full of wits and insights. One of my favorite books.
The author would like the reader to relax and to follow the story without having to take notes or to memorise names and dates. And that's exactly what has happened to me.
