I am 57 years old but I found it a good read very informative while not going into details. I really wish you would do another book covering current topics and their
history in the same stlye. Like Medicine, technology, pollution, population, environment, governments, cause and effects of war etc.
Actually they should make it into a text book and introduce it into the 6th standard in school. After kids get this broad introduction into the history of the earth then they can start learning it in detail. They will have a better appreciation of the progress mankind has made in the different fields and also of the problems facing us in the present times and the possible solutions.

About the author (2003)

Jane Elliott is a pseudonym. The author first decided to tell her story to the police after taking inspiration from Dave Pelzer's powerful memoir A Child Called It and becoming convinced that she could no longer remain a silent victim of the stepfather who had kept her a virtual prisoner for so many years.

Colin King is Project Manager, The Martin Shaw King Trust, Goldsmiths College, University of London. He is also a soccer coach.
