    1. Desperately needs to be re-titled “Days that Changed the Western World,” this book is more like a dictionary of significant events that lead to the rise of Europe and North America. The dictionary-like style becomes dry, vague and tedious. Let’s face it, dictionaries are designed to be consulted one entry at a time, not read cover to cover like this book presumably is.This books claims to be about days, but it really isn’t. The author uses days to summarise much larger, often century-spa [...]


    2. FIFTY DAYS THAT CHANGED THE WORLD. (2008). Hywel Williams. ****. This edition from The Folio Society was originally published in 2006 under the title, “Days That Changed the World: The 50 Defining Events of World History.” The only changes in this current edition is the addition of an introduction by the author, and the inclusion of illustrations for each day. Most of us can think of defining moments in history. Many of our choices will be picked from our lifetimes, for obvious reasons. When [...]


    3. This was my "Coffee Break" book when I had 5 minutes free here and there. It's broken down into a series of short essays of the "50 Defining Events of World History." You probably don't reach the level of detail necessary for most of the events, but it is a nice refresher especially for those events you are unfamiliar with. For more common-education events, the author really does do a very good job analyzing long term effects. Each event had at least one perspective I'd never thought of.


    4. A dull hyperbolic, over-simplified, Euro-centric take on history. While some chapters are pretty interesting, most are examples that do not meet the books title. The non-European (or neo-European) examples feel like token gestures that again do not meet the book's scope. Finally, only two dates are from before 1 CE; nothing world changing happened prior to the Greek defeat of the Persian Empire's advance or Julius Caesar's assassination?


    5. I would recommend this book to people who don't want to commit to reading a whole book front to back. This book is broken into 50 stories consisting of nothing but the facts of what happened at these events. I enjoyed it thoroughly since the writing style is short and to the point. The author provides detail on the background information and reasoning for the events without going unnecessarily deep. I recommend this for anyone who likes to read historical books without wanting to read an entire [...]


    6. The writing is pretty dry and no real rationale is given as to why the given events were chosen over other, similarly influential, events. It also seemed like a three page essay was far too short to do justice for almost any of these historical events.


    7. A fantastic book which shows 50 different events which have shaped history. The author describes the event and then provides the background to what lead up to the event and the impact the event had on shaping the world as we know it today.




    8. Excellent read. Just enough (about seven pages each)to give one an appreciation of how important the event was, without being bogged-down with detail. Very helpful comments on these great events.


    9. Great little breakdown of so many important events in world history. Would read again (just gets you thinking) and makes me want to read more.





    10. Interesting read. However, it would have been even more interesting if it had been a little less analytic and a bit more descriptive.
