This book is the only guide you will need to explore all the most important historical sites on the planet From Stonehenge to the Great Wall of China from Sterkfontein Caves the 'cradle of humanity' in South Africa to Checkpoint Charli Without a doubt one of the worst written books I have ever encountered or perhaps just a case that in nearly every mini essay I tried there were multiple grammar and prose infractions that destroyed the experience Much of the prose is similar to some I have seen in freshman level history reports and these folks were likely paid to write this mess Clearly there was no actual editor in charge or one who badly dropped the ball Usually when I come across something that causes my teeth to grind I simply delete it from my record but I felt I had to warn people I couldn't keep reading it was so painful If you must try it just thumb through and enjoy the pictures I suspect at least I hope that those in charge were better at selecting important and interesting landmarks than shepherding the work of their contributors and this wish may be unrealized as well because the inclusion of dig pits mines stadiums and the like are uestionable My mom used to say If you can't say something nice don't say anything but sheeshI actually didn't read the entire book because I didn't want a coronary though I looked through it and even sampled additional entries; I didn't want the book languishing on my to read list
