9 - History Year by Year
I am a huge fan of the DK series of works and was given this book as a gift earlier in the year. If you are thinking "another history of the world" then maybe it is worth having a look at this title. As with all DK books its superbly presented, full of colour and life with plenty of illustrations, diagrams, maps and timelines to back up the facts given. Like many of you I am sure, I have a wide range of books on the same "History of the World" theme but I happen to think that this title is much more accessible, interesting and enjoyable than some of the more heavy tomes.
Well worth a look, an ideal gift for quizzers too!, and another great entry in the DK series.
