Many imagine history books as the ones from their childhood: thin paper, small letters and hard to understand. Thankfully, not all history books are the same and many modern ones are interesting and well-written. The authors of these books change the way history is viewed and make the subject enjoyable to read. It’s easier to retain information when it’s presented in an entertaining fashion.

For a truly comprehensive experience, Cynthia Stokes Brown’s Big History is a must read. It’s an incredible book that starts at the Big Bang and works its way through history. It might sound overwhelming, but Brown does an excellent job delivering a large amount of information in a pleasant way.

Focus on world-changing civilizations in Guns, Germs, and Steel. For this book, Jared Diamond won a Pulitzer Prize and exposed millions of people to his opinions of the great empires and civilizations. He delves deep into the ingenuity and creativity of the people and gives them lots of praise for progressing humanity forward.

The Silk Roads by Peter Frankopan looks at the famous Silk Road from the perspective of the Asian and Middle Eastern civilizations. He takes his readers through the struggles and triumphs and explains in detail what led to the eventual end of the Silk Road and how it affected the Asian and Middle Eastern people.
