I needed this book for my History of Civilization class but I honestly enjoyed reading through the different chapters even if it was information that I didn't need for my assignments. Its interesting to understand how humans evolved over time, as well as how we find ourselves in similar situations as past civilizations. It was like reading a story book :-)

I rely heavily on reviews when purchasing stuff on the internet and know the importance of writing them as well to help others in their decisions. If you found this review to be informative in any way, please mark as "helpful". I would appreciate it very much! Have a great day!
Really easy to understand! Recommend!
