Many of the events are presented in a bland or non-controversial way. It requires digging deeper to find out the intensity of the issues casually mentioned in this 979 page summary of nearly everything historical. Some sections go back dozens of years. Other sections cover thousands of years of history. Thus, rather than being an in-depth treatment, it gives an outline.

The pop down TOC has much finer navigation than the active TOC at the front of the book. I like the more detailed navigation.

I rather look forward to the 2022 edition, although it seems like a great deal of it will be identical to this one.

My father had a whole raft of these; my semi-infinite stack only dates to 2020, which is when I retired. I was a bit taken aback reading the Top Ten News Topics of 2023 (not knowing the cutoff date) that the start of the 2023 Israel-Hamas War was #1 and the repeal of the COVID-19 Public Health Emergency of International Concern - PHEIC- was #8. An essential reference.

Great cast of characters. Not much of a plot.
