History… it’s just one thing after another, right? Wrong!
In the tradition of DK’s bestselling reference books Pick Me Up and Do Not Open comes a look at history like you’ve never seen it before! Meet the good, the great and the truly unusual through first-person eyewitness accounts to great (and not so great ) moments of human history. Bloody battles, revolting revolutions, monstrous monarchs, they’re all here!
Imagine being an eyewitness to the construction of the Great Pyramid or the Great Wall of China – what were the working conditions like? Was the Incan mountaintop city of Machu Pichu really chosen because it was shaped like a nose? Who was the person of the century in the 1700s? What was it like to live in a slave ship?
The History Book is a blast from the past, revealing what life was like for our ancestors and how we got to the place we are now. Showing the key events in history as they've never been seen before – using cutting edge graphics and unlikely contexts to complement each historical period – this wild ride through the past uses punchy, irreverent text to bring the past to life. From the Stone Age to the Digital Age you'll find it all in The History Book!
