Not really finished. It's a reference book, so I've used it many a time. More before I had regular internet, of course. But it's nice to have the physical thing in my hands. Read full review

The early years of human history seem to have less information than might be available, particularly spotty in Asian history and pretty much nothing about Africa south of the Sahara. Still, an interesting browse and a good place to see what was happening in a given year. Read full review
