The History of the Renaissance World by Susan Wise Bauer

The History of the Renaissance World covers the period from the rediscovery of Aristotle through the conquest of Constantinople. The chapters are relatively short and rotate around the world in a relatively chronological manner. The history is far from dry, and often is downright funny. Bauer has quite a talent at telling a story. I definitely recommend this book to anyone interested in history.
