Wells had an intense curiosity and used it to investigate and share the entire history of the world in a condensed form. Wells, the great science fiction writer who wrote The War of the Worlds and The Invisible Man, was fascinated with the real world just as much as his imaginary ones. This book is a testament to his genius and immense knowledge involving the key events of humanity throughout the history of the world. He allows us to witness how we learned, grew, and reached deeper understandings throughout our physical, intellectual, and spiritual evolution. He also reveals that we are still in our infancy and have only just begun an immense and important journey. The pattern he lays out shows that we are moving toward new ways of understanding, growth, and wisdom.
