I have to say as a World History and Geography teacher, this book is great! I have been able to dream up many projects and gain a lot of knowledge from this book. There are interesting facts, awesome pictures, an outstanding dissection of different people and it is a book that gives you what you are looking for in one shot. The two weak points of this book is that some of the content is wrong, such as the Chicago cubs is referred to as a football team. Also, there are a few grammar errors throughout the book. The second problem is that this book does not cover all the people of the world. The book talks about the Marsh Arabs (Island Iraqis), but skips over the people of Iraq, Saudi Arabia and Syria. The book talks about Japan, China, and even Siberia, but misses the boat on the Philippines. A full coverage was done of the Europeans, Americans (North, Central and South), and most of the Africans. When you get to Asia and the Pacific, they seemed cheated. Do not misunderstand me, this book is great. At the same time, I wish the author would have covered all the people of the world. Again, this is a great book, but the second edition should include more.
I got this for my 22nd birthday 2 days ago and I really love it. It shows in some parts of it how they combine old world to modern world. The pictures so wonderful. Its better then the refernce series of people, I forgot the title of it. Thank you.
