Just because history lies deep in the past doesn’t mean it should be forgotten. The history of our country and our heritage is a great example.
One esteemful approach is respect toward our ancestors and their work. One doesn’t have to look far to find great examples of thought and action.
Another esteemful approach is to learn of the mistakes of history in order to not repeat them.
Esteem toward history recognizes great heroic actions as well as the mistakes.
With esteem we don’t condemn history and our ancestors, but we appreciate and try to learn what we consider to be human and good.

It does do a great job of highlighting all the big events in various points in history and even includes some details that other history books don’t. I was surprised how much I learned from this. I really like how everything is laid out, it makes it very easy to follow. I especially like the section on Native Americans. Very concise. Overall I’d highly recommend this book by Adam Brown to anyone who wants to dip there toes in the history of the world.
This little book provided me with something that I lacked: a general knowledge of early history which now allows me to enjoy and learn from more literature without confusion.
I was very surprised that such a short read would be packed with so much information. Usually the history books are filled with a lot of information that isn’t interesting, but this one had information that was not only interesting, but information that you would remember and tell your friends and family next time you see them. This book is one of the history books that you will be excited to read and if you can put it down, will want to pick up almost immediately to keep on reading. I highly recommend this book to anyone interested in history but don’t want to read about all of the boring parts.
