  1. There are sometimes when you read books that change your world view, if even slightly I mean, OK, realistically, what book will change your world view completely They make you think, stay with you for some time, making you want to talk with others around you about the fresh things you ve just found out but for some reasons nobody seems to care about What on Earth Happened has been one of those books for me.It s a beast It took me slightly less than 3 months to read it all, but at times I remembe [...]


  2. The problem I had with this book is that I am a science student, and I have a fairly good grasp of most of the basic concepts covered in it I was looking for something to further my knowledge, not a book that would introduce the idea of evolution etc and I only made it about 20 pages in 50 if you include the ones I skim read, hoping for an improvement before I gave up.Lloyd would touch incredibly briefly on everything he could, give a feeble description note no scientific explanations and then m [...]


  3. DNF d this about halfway through This book looked like it would be so interesting, full of things I am interested in, beautifully illustrated, just the kind of book I enjoy But I had several problems with it that led to me DNFing it First, the author just barely skims the surface of every topic That is of course unavoidable in a book that sets out to cover the entire history of the earth within 400 pages or so, half of which are pictures But these are topics I am interested in and therefore alre [...]


  4. I have first read the What on Earth Evolved and What on Earth Happened is like a superior brother to that one It is such a refreshing way of looking at history and under all embellishments which added a lot to the book to be honest it has such a strong backbone and structure to it, I am in awe of it as a writer.In the beginning due to my biology background, I kinda scoffed at the information as I trained in it but as the human history part rolled on it provided me with insights that made me gasp [...]


  5. What on Earth Happened is a brief introduction of the history of life on earth The book was crafted in simple language, conveyed a message without complicating things which what makes this an interesting and entertaining read, rather than a boring Still, it s difficult to finish reading in one go due to its massive load of information What on Earth Happened is a quick 24 hour tour through the origin of life I do not recommend it if you have already knew what happened and are looking for somethin [...]


  6. Ik lees door mijn dyslexie niet zo snel, zeker niet bij een informatief boek Dan is dit ook nog een boek waarin veel Latijnse namen voorkomen of namen uit Azi die in mijn ogen allemaal op elkaar lijken Sowieso erg veel namen Leuk en interessant, maar het maakt het niet erg makkelijk leesbaar Dus ik kon niet meer dan een hoofdstuk per keer lezen, terwijl dat gemiddeld maar 12 pagina s zijn Maar ondanks de namen was het wel fijn geschreven Geen lange zinnen en veel dingen worden concreet of beelde [...]


  7. It s quite an accomplishment to fit the world and its history in a book as small as this, but it does work to a degree It s an interesting read and you ll not want to put it down, but looking back after several years from completing it it s difficult to remember the majority of what was discussed because the narrative is so fast in some chapters, millions of years What is good, is there is an emphasis on evolution and how the planets helped the climate which engendered life on earth such as the [...]


  8. From the advance of the Mogul Empire to the migration of mammals from continent to continent, from the rise of the dinosaurs to the Wright brothers first powered flight, this book is a worthy historical compilation suitable for any library Students of history will thrill to each magnificent chapter and the fine paintings and photographs highlight those special moments that bring history to life The timeline at the end of the book is also a gold mine of information, enabling the reader to place e [...]


  9. Condenses the impossible details of each part of earth s history according to the updated when book was written knowledge Although some of the controversial bits have been changing, particularly regarding early humans, and although a lot of important geologic reasoning is skipped in order to tell a good story The diligent reader has to do her part to research on the finer details regarding carbon dating methods, its principles and limitations, in order to effectively critique or develop a richer [...]


  10. This is a pretty necessary book, as world histories do tend to be a little people centric What On Earth Happened provides or attempts to provide a comprehensive view of history, from the Big Bang to present day, incorporating natural history, politics human accomplishments into the continuum they truly are Naturally, an extreme limitation to a work like this is its length, but then there would be considerable fewer readers of the multi volume set it really needs to be As it stands, this book pr [...]


  11. interesting facts and anecdotes loaded in 416 pages It gives the readers a whole overview on the history of the earth since Big Bang happened and all the subsequent events of the world I like how the author relates one event to another brings us, readers to enjoy the chronology and the chains of event and how a situation would lead to another However, I do have some reservation on some of the contents of the book 1 It s so much driven by the theory of evolution The theory of evolution is not the [...]


  12. An incredible history book which spans the dawn of time to the present day, in a five meter long fold out book timeline which can be laid out on a table, floor or wall Children can walk around the book and dip into different periods of time Unique and very engaging Great for reluctant readers and pupils interested in history Can be used as a lesson starter, introduction to a history topic, a theme for English , e.g children get to choose a period of history , research it ICT, posters leaflets , [...]


  13. This is an extraordinary book about how the Earth has been formed, how it developed and the entire history of Mankind until our days, ending with pertinent questions about the sustainability of the Planet where we are living.The way the author describes how the Earth was formed and started to have life as well as how and what happened until the first Homo Sapiens started to walk around our Planet is simply fabulous, serious, grounded on scientific studies and described in a very simple way.We sh [...]


  14. A superb condensed and chronological history of the world Geography of a fine calibre A delight for anyone with an interest in the world and our future It includes some useful summary tables and it filled one or two gaps in my knowledge of what went on I like books that have websites too whatonearthhappened It is on a par with Bill Bryson s book A short History of Nearly Everything enpedia wiki A_Short_


  15. This is a very interesting history of the world starting with the Big Bang Theory and breaks it down and compares it to a 24 hour period The last 500 years are one hundredth of the last second before midnight You think this would be boring but it has lots of pictures and maps.


  16. Excellent book that allows the reader the opportunity to put things into some sort of chronological order reasons why some events occurred It would be a great first step book for anyone interested in the various fields of science but is still at the crossroads to determine direction.


  17. Excellent chronological detail of all that has happened on our planet Its hard to accommodate everything but the author does a fair job China and Europe get a lot space than South America and Australia but thats understandable.


  18. 150 pages in one day, that s a personal record right there Science and History together are an exquisite combo, you deserve all those 5 stars I just wished you had recommended reading at the end, because I wanted to continue on this history science theme.


  19. Leuk boek Op een beknopte wijze de wereldgeschiedenis, mijn huiver was dat het te simplistisch geschreven zou zijn, was geenszins het geval Compliment aan de schrijver om in 500 pagina s zoveel thema s en onderwerpen te behandelen.





  20. It was okay Very interesting in the beginning, not so much later on But I do have a thing for ancient history than for recent history, so that makes sense Fun read, still.
