Thick and lengthy book about various evolutions of modern seafaring, science, medicine, etc. Though heavy on Western discoverers, it is very detailed in the progression of each segment and little tid bits of information is surprising and interesting. Whoever thought about how the concept of "time" came to be?

This is a book anyone has to read it. It looks to be a complete study guide about history, humanity and how we evolved as we did. It is the most interesting history book I have ever read.
