This book was awesome.

I didn't know what to expect going into this book. I wasnt sure how much information I would get or if it was just about the actual headlines. Thankfully its was full of fantastic information.

The information in this book was really quite fascinating. I already knew about a lot of the topics that were mentioned but I found myself really engaged and interested and I genuinely feel like I learnt something whilst reading this book.

I thought the layout of this book was perfect. Each headline was followed by background information to explain the situation as well as follow up details about the event in question.

With so many Headlines being covered in this book, I wasnt surprised that I knew a fair few of them. What did surprise me however was the fact that I had never heard of some of them. This mix of known and unknown subjects mad for a really wonderful reading experience.

If you are looking for an interesting read that gives you a snap shot of History, this is definitely the book for you.

100 Headlines That Changed The World by James Maloney is an absolute must read.
