Don't like.

Bought it now wont download, says downloading but hasn't made any progress.

Great book, but beware.

First, this book took forever to download, after all, it is 1 GB. At times it appeared as if it wasn't downloading at all, much like the comment above/below, however, you can download it on your computer and then transfer the book. Or you can wait, either way, be patient.

Second, to fully enjoy some features, such as the 20 minute video on Cro-Magnon's tools which I enjoyed, you have to be connect wifi, unless you plan to pay for going over your data plan.

At firsts, I felt a bit overwhelm by the many features the book provided, but I eventually learned the ins and outs.

Overall, this book does a nice job of providing a nice overview of world history and does so in an interactive way that is engaging.

Suggestions for improvement: Have a wider variety of end-of-chapter questions for the quiz. And also have different levels of difficulty for the questions.

Release date

Sample is great! The book is nicely designed and great!! The only downfall is that they keep pushing the release date back... The book is needed for people and it's a big in-convince that it's still not out yet. Other then that I like the iBook material for this book!
