The Story of the World series by Susan Wise Bauer is good for kids, but what about adults? If there is no such series for adults, could you recommend different books that when read together completely covers from ancient times to modern times without overlapping? I think reading 3-6 books would give me a good overall picture of history. Thanks
Recommending more than 6 books would be okay, too. I'm willing to spend from a few months up to a year reading up on history.
