Interesting, but there are quite a few errors in this book. For example, the storming of the Bastille and general assembly are listed as having occurred in 1798 (near the end of the revolution) when in fact it was 1789. These are easy errors to catch and would make one think this book was lazily put together. To add, formatting is poor. Some text is partially covered by images, making it impossible to read the full sentences.
Although the book is well-structured, its authors didn't invest enough time into editing. You can see lots of error here and there.
For example, "“On July 14 1798, the Bastille was stormed ”... A person, who at least vaguely familiar with French Revolution, knows that it cannot be 1798, as Revolution was almost over that year. It is 1789, when Bastille was taken.
My advice: read with caution.
Great but needs a lot of editing
There are a lot of grammatical and spelling errors, as well as a simple picture of a few loaves of bread blocking a paragraph. I couldn't get passed the first chapter. The graphics, maps and interaction is great, just needs a lot of work.
Also, a three year old drawing of what the different classes were? Hilarious..but come on...
