      I can t bring myself to jump on the warm and fuzzy bandwagon of approval of this deeply flawed book It is what it is a condensation of all of human history into sequential stories suitable for children Supposing for the moment that this is not an inherent recipe for disaster, what is baffling is the number of reviewers who claim to see something in this work for adults Other reviewers seem to agree on the book s lack of condescension , so I guess I ll have to chalk my own perception of Gombrich [...]

      Even if everything else in this book had been badly written which is not the case , for this comment alone this book deserves very single one of the five stars I gave it And when, in 1918, America s President Wilson announced that he wanted a just peace in which each nation would determine its own fate, many of their troops gave up.Then, having understood from President Wilson that there was to be a peace treaty, and that negotiations were to be held in the ancient royal palaces of Versailles, S [...]

      All the histories I read in school were based on an English world view and yes it was English, because the Scots, Irish and Welsh barely got a look in except as being a nuisance needing to be put down They certainly didn t give any idea about European history, as the island viewpoint prevailed still does, it seems, after the Brexit vote.So reading Ernst Gombrich s Little History has been a delight Lucky children to have this as an introduction to history Of course the central viewpoint is German [...]

      A fantastic tour de force of the history of the world in less than 300 pages The book is intended for young readers between 12 and 16 I would mean but is also enjoyable for the older reader like myself as a brief overview of what has happened on our planet from prehistoric times until the fall of the Berlin wall The history is however as should be expected very Europe centric If I ever get the chance, it would be so interesting at least to me to read this book with one of my kids when they have [...]

      This is a very concise and fun to read history of the world A little Christianity heavy, but not overzealous The tone of the book is great There s a real sense of wonder and amazement Chapters are short too It s a great book to read for 10 minutes before bed because you can finish a whole chapter in that time easily.I recommend it to anyone looking for an entertaining overview of the history of the world You won t find a lot of details and whys in here, but it s a very satisfying and interesting [...]

      I first read the book and then purely because I liked it listened to the Blackstone Audio app, narrated capably by Ralph Cosham I like his British accent He is easy on the ears Could listen to him for hours Do, in fact Need a gift for an adolescent or young adult, or just want to learn a little about world history yourself I suggest this book, if you don t mind a grandfatherly tone addressed to adolescents Some say the conversational voice is condescending, but I took no insult and enjoyed it A [...]

      So much energy and warmth in a single book Author s strong pacifist nature is the best part of it though Recommended for everyone

      It s important to keep in mind that his target audience is children young adults He writes in a simple style, often engaging the reader directly Why do you think this happened , and painting a very general picture of world read European history While this probably won t shake the core of your beliefs about history, Gombrich does do a good job of humanizing all cultures and showing how even events in ancient history are still relevant As for it being Eurocentric, well, that s not surprising He s [...]
