If ever there was something to give you a bit of perspective, it’s this book.
I’m not far into it, but if geological time was 24 hours (actually 4 billion years ago to now) humans would have been around for just 3 minutes!
The book takes you through:
Life before man (13.7 billion – 7 million BC)
Human evolution (7 million – 5000 BC)
Ancient history (5000 BC – 1521 AD)
Modern history (520 AD – today)
What on Earth happened – in brief? By Christopher Lloyd.
