mental_floss has had a magazine and web presence for years now. Their books specialize in streamlined knowledge; the perfect way to pick up the essentials of a moment in world history, the history of science, sporting trivia, etc.
I really enjoyed this book. It managed to take the entire history of civilization and condense it in a very intelligent way. All the major highlights of Western history are touched upon. What I loved best, however, is that it really is a WORLD history...I learned things my History classes never covered about Asian History, and the complex civilizations of the Americas and Africa.
The format is accessibly, streamlined, but never dumbed-down. It's well organized, and filled with as much humor as history. A perfect book for anyone looking to refresh their memories of high school English class, or just looking to learn something new about the history of the world.
