one of the most beautiful books ever written on this earth , so simple, so fluid, so charming and that too on the history of the world, Feel proud that this book was written by our own Prime Minister Pandit Nehru.
I have till now read only 65 pages of the 1129 pages this book has and been enlightened with the fascinating history of various civilizations and countries. The writing style is so lucid and easy to understand.
Great book if you want to get a feel of world history on various timelines. It is not only about the warriors, it is also about common people, their aspirations, perils on those timelines. Since it was written by Nehruji for his teenage daughter Indira Gandhi, the language is very simple and can be followed by anybody. Great book by even greater & knowledgeable personality.
The book is no doubt outstanding. But one thing to bring to your kmowledge that if you kindly reduce the prices of the other bookd by Jawahar lal Nehru,such as The Discovery of India , Letters from A Father to His Daughter and other books by Mmany great writers ( at least at a discount of 50 to 60%), we can easily buy them. Otherwise the rates of the books are too high.
