Vorwort
A history book like no other - an irreverent, rollicking, romp through everything interesting that ever happened on planet earth from 15 million years BC to today.

Autorentext
Dave Rear is a writer and academic who lives and works in Tokyo. He read history at Cambridge and, out of sheer lack of imagination, almost became a school teacher, until he came to his senses and emigrated. He now lectures in English language, history, social science and anything else his students let him get away with. He is married with a young son, who occasionally gives him five minutes or so to write.
