I have always found Professor Braudel's writing to be clear, concise and very well reasoned. This three volume set is both informative and very entertaining. I would recommend this book to anyone with any level of interest in how one of the most significant factors in today's economy developed.

Not just a doorstop
Great illustrations, for one thing. And a good mix of a well constructed narrative and a wide scope of time and place covered. This is one of my favorite books of history, along with venture of islam by marshall hodgson, another excellent trilogy. Highly recommended.
