Same production team, same Foreword by Peter Snow, same printing in Malaysia.
The Smithsonian version also includes a 78-page Timeline which is totally engrossing in its own right.
Hence the Read-Now pages are almost exactly the same, except for outside covers.
The Smithsonian with extra Timeline sells for £35.50 (on Amazon) whereas this 78 page shorter version sells for £17 (on Amazon today, and on 4th November I was able to buy D-K version for only £10.99).
So this D-K version can be excellent value, but you need to watch the price you pay!
The full colour, glossy pages are stunning. The text is arranged in such a way that information is captured in snippets not in paragraphs after paragraphs of essay.
I love everything about this book, which has been dubbed by my son as ‘the best thing you ever bought for me’.
Also a somewhat more simple and clear description of thing would be better.
For me there is just too much information.
