Areas of the book doesn't flow very well and you can start to get bored with it.
The book was very helpful and I learned a lot through studying this book. There is nothing I would change, except maybe organization of ideas. It was a little hard to follow through specific topics covered.read more
The only thing that would make this book better is cutting out the unnecessary information. It was a great read and I enjoyed it, but the price was a little crazy. Book prices don't seem very fair to me, but the book was informative.
The chapters in this book were much too long to be effective or understandable. They were on average 60-80 pages and were not easy when trying to retrieve information or remembering past references.read more
I learned very little from this book due mostly from its exhausting narrations that dragged on far too long. I relied more on my professor's power points. Even the "simplified breakdowns" of the chapter in the last few pages were wordy and not helpful.
The Chapter Outline and Focus Questions as well as the Chapter Summary bulleted points of important information to take away from the chapter and direct/guide focus of the reader.read more
World History since the 1500's. I believe the book was very thorough and detailed, although dry at some points, the excerpts from individuals pertaining the topic made the content not only more personal, but relatable and effective.
