Encompassing the earliest civilizations to the fall of Rome, The History of the Ancient World takes the reader on a journey deep through ancient history, but it never feels like reading a textbook. Susan Wise Bauer’s writing style is very accessible and engaging, and sometimes amusing, making history come to life. I very highly recommend this book for anyone of high school age or older interested in increasing their knowledge of ancient history.
