"A lovely, lively historical surveya fine conception and summarizing of the world's checkered
past for young and old."Kirkus Reviews, starred review

"A remarkable book, written in an amiable, conversational styleThis resurrected history deserves reading
for all its delights."New York Times

"The true fairy tale of the evolution of mankind."Die Zeit

E. H. Gombrich's world history, an international bestseller now available in English for the first time, is a text
dominated not by dates and facts but by the sweep of experience across the centuries, a guide to humanity's
achievements, and an acute witness to its frailties.

In forty concise chapters, Gombrich tells the story of humanity from the Stone Age to the atomic bomb. In
between emerges a colorful picture of wars and conquests, grand works of art, and the spread and limitations
of science. The product of a generous and humane sensibility, this timeless account makes intelligible the full
span of human history for the curious of all ages.

Among E. H. GOMBRICH's many writings are the international best-sellers, The Story of Art and Art and Illusion. He was director of the Warburg Institute of the University of London from 1959 to 1976.

Geoffrey Howard is a retired British journalist who strives to add warmth and clarity to every audiobook. Says Howard, "I try to bring the listener as close as possible to the experience I'm having while reading it for the first time."
