This book taught me alot about history. I really thought history was the most boring subject but when I read this book I realized that history isn't just a bunch of old dates. It's actually interesting! Like did you know? The first humans on earth developed in about 6,000,000 BCE. Or did you know? The first Harry Potter book was made in 1997. WOW!

When I first started reading this book it was awesome and when I finished the book it was awesome. But to be honest I was a little bored. It was a good book and packed with information but if it was a tad bit shorter that would have been better.

Very interesting book filled with lots of awesome facts that I didn't know. One thing I would suggest would be making it shorter because I got a little bit bored.

I loved this book! It taught me so much about wars, natural disasters and things that happened in the past with such small actions and changed the world. The book also explains the struggles of the people in the past such as Nelson Mandela. It also explains that there are struggles that people have to live with to this day. It explains how technology, people and animals have changed over the years and why. It makes you appreciate what you have around you.

A History about just everything 180 events, people and inventions that changed the world
By: Connor R

This is a book about just about everything, from the first humans in 6 000 000 BCE to Higgs boson particle found in 2013. When I was reading this book, I learned stuff I probably wouldn’t have learned until I’d be 20. It talks about only interesting facts like the Vikings and the Star Wars movies. With 115 pages of fun, the excitement never ends.
