Watersheds of World History by John L. Taylor
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
After reading through the book I wasn’t sure if I actually liked it or not. It does cover several important times in history but it also skips a few I would expect to see. A history book shouldn’t be written from any one point of view, instead it should present the known facts and allow the reader to make their own judgements. It wouldn’t hurt to have someone good at noticing mistakes (editor) point out the more obvious ones. It’s not bad for a first attempt, but certainly not something I’d push for including in a school or library. That said, there’s plenty of garbage out there that’s far worse than this one.
