This fantastic little reference tome contains 4 millenia of world history in an easy to use format. Every other page contains a map or chart of a region or era. The opposite page has a brief description of the events depicted on the chart. Although it is essentially a compendium of just dates, facts, maps and charts, there is a surprising amount of information in here. Moreover, in this age of Wikipedia, where all of this data is available online, it is still rewarding to browse through this book and see how everything is connected together and what has going on in China at the same time that the Taj Mahal was built in India.
My only gripe is that since this book was created by 20th Century German historians, it is euro-centric. However, this pocket-sized book is worth every penny. They should print another edition! Also - the second volume (from 1789 to the 1980s) is also excellent.
