12/20, 阅读计划 2014 - A Little History Of The World ~ E.H. Gombrich

Narration from stone age to the second world war. Was never a history buff but this book definitely makes it a easy read. Since it's written by Austrian born, British writer, the history is more of a "western" one (though the author did try to touch on some Asian ones).

I personally think it's a amazing book and one that I will definitely reread. It's almost like a grandfather writing a book for his grandchildren, one that they can understand and appreciate easily.
There's no dates or facts loading, it's one that while celebrating human success also reminds us of our weakness and frailties.
