This is a highly enjoyable overview of the last 500 years of intellectual and cultural history. Barzun weaves in concise and witty bios of major and less well known figures, while maintaining forward momentum with his history and themes. He supplies bits of writing from key players, and has his own scheme of themes. I would highly recommend this book.
