About the Book

The History Essentials book presents a plethora of historical milestones and names in a thoughtfully arranged timeline format. Jam-packed with events and people who have changed the course of history, The History Essentials 'fills in the gaps' with facts that may have escaped your studies or memory -- until now. While reading, take time for a few, fun, 'rabbit trail' adventures by researching unfamiliar terms along the way. Look up words in bold or entire periods or cultures, and concentrate on topics that pique your interest. Then, delve deeper, and keep going as your fascination with history expands. In doing so, you will begin to round-out your knowledge of history without losing your place, because you can always return to the timeline and pick up where you left off.

While this book written a timeline format, each page can still stand alone. This allows the busy student to pick up the book and study at any place in the book, and read or research one page at time if preferred. The History Essentials book is therefore ideal for both cover-to-cover reading as well as at-a-glance learning.
