"A fun resource. It's published by Reader's Digest and has that 'user friendly' feel that I expect from the books they choose to publish. Caroline Taggart explains things in a clear and interesting way that makes it all relevant to today. I wish she had been around when I was in school-would have been more enjoyable than memorizing dry facts and I probably would have remembered more of the details. Serious subjects are presented in a fun and entertaining way." -Sweeps for Bloggers (Blog)
"Overall, I thought this was a great way to learn (or re-learn) a bit of our ancient history and heritage, while keeping it lighthearted and informative! Recommended!" -The Loud Librarian (Blog)
