   Damaged corners of book
Color, images, information I'm satisfied with. Definitely getting more of this book. Corners of book, bumped clean. Simply put, book corner protectors are needed to arrive at customers in a similar condition as when they ordered on line.

   not a great educational tool
Each page has a separate timeline for a single topic, and every single timeline uses a completely different layout and design. However, since each timeline is a standalone topic, there is no broader context for it. And for example, I'm looking at Technology of Writing, and I can see that the Chinese had developed that moveable type in the 1040s. But I dont really know anything else about the 1040s so it becomes another meaningless number that I will quickly forget. There are a few true timelines that show the actual timescale of events, but most are simply event sequences. Even with the help of 3D scanning, it's hard to get a sense of scale. Many of the visualizations are original works of art. But I just feel like there's too much form over function here, Gammerman said. The book is a great introduction to coffee-table books, but it's not a great learning tool.

   Great Visual Presentation; Weird Facts and Skewed HIstory
The visuals are great, which I would expect from a DK publication. Or, perhaps, DK or the Smithsonian took this book as an opportunity to slip in some out of place facts. There is also a section on Fun and Festivals, which talks about things like the first zoo, Mayan festivals, Carnival, etc. It's great to be back home, said Blair. Then there's a section on modern Pride festivals. I did a double take because in the thousands of years of human history, that doesn't seem like something important enough to call out here.

   Don't Waste you money and time- Inaccurate Information Reported
It's a nice looking book with pictures, Hachette said. But with inaccurate data, Taylor said. Several of the dates cited by Dr. Abraham were also reported as fact. Ex-wall construction and the fall of the Berlin wall. The Harrisons had inaccurate dates of when they were killed. Also, the information on South America has the wrong year. The book lacks a wider historical backgroundtimeline on other parts of world history, such as Asia, the Middle East and South America. Furthermore, the Harrisons’ theories have been described as factual. The Big Bang theory says that men evolved from apes. The book argues that Darwinism and Mao's ideology are not mutually exclusive. See pictures for reference. Without exposing oneself to incorrect information, he said.

   Wonderful gift!
Hand made for my 11 yr old nan who is a history buff and two time geography bee champ. Mr. Kennedy has fallen in love with the new technology, even though it may take years more to find the right person. What really appealed to us was the book was so well written, Douglas said.

   Awesome!
The book is so well written, I couldn't put it down. I purchased it for my classroom and it's still sitting in my house. My husband, 9-year-old, aunt, uncle, and niece all love it.

   Coolest history book
This book is truly an interesting read. My son has a growing interest in history and geography and I wanted to give him something to do with it. It's an amazing compilation of histories of all sorts of things, from the history of mapmaking to the history of board games. It also has general history topics in timeline form, making it a great book for an adult history buff or for older kids.

   Teenagers and adult, not really for kids..
The fact is, this is an amazing encyclopedia. We ordered it for our 14th birthday but I felt in love with it so we had to reorder a second one for me and my husband. I thought it would be childish or something, but it's really well made.

   Super happy with this
I'm not a huge fan of timelines in our homeschool. My son would prefer to learn everything by studying facts. This book is the perfect solution to both of those problems, Dr. Goin added. I'm delighted by the book. It covers pretty much all of American history. Great resource, said Robert Reichert, director of NASA's Ames Research Center in California.

   Every classroom should have this book!
Wow! That was pretty impressive, right? My 9-year-old son is devouring this book as though it was a novel. He has gone through all the other books he has read this year to place them on the timeline. Every upper elementary teacher should have this in their classroom library.
