Some colleges in the United States have begun to use the World History Chart
and Book as required textbook reading in their Humanities Departments.
A sample from hundreds of testimonials :
'As you may already know, your Web site has been selected
for inclusion in the Britannica Internet Guide.
That's really something to crow about.'
'I have purchased several of your charts in the past, and my discovery of this online project has been a real thrill. This is by far the coolest site on the web. What a natural and fantastic use of technology to enable us to leap backward in time and expand our intellectual horizons.'
'Just received your chart and accompanying booklet of the World History Chart. I am pleased with the printed product, as I am fascinated with any graphic which can show at a glance the timeline of recorded history. I find it especially useful in teaching my military history courses to US Army officers.'
'Who in the world did this amazing timeline site? It must have taken several 100 hours. I studied religious history at Yale 1994-96, and wish that I'd had this site then, because it's such a handy reference too - a great way to put any event or era into a global and historical context. At a glance one can see what else was going on in the world when, for example, Moses lived, or Paul wrote his letters that would later enter the New Testament.'

'Your site has been featured on LibrarySpot, the information sweetspot of the best library and reference resources on the Web. The LibrarySpot editorial team has scoured the Web for the very best library and reference sites, and found yours to be a top-notch tool for students, parents, teachers, librarians, their patrons and anyone doing research on the World Wide Web.'
'May I offer my congratulations on a truly excellent presentation. It isn't often that one finds significant merit on this network anymore, and I consider myself fortunate to have found your site. As an historian and general systems scientist by training, it has often seemed that there should be some way to portray the broad temporal event relationships in such a way that we could understand the relationships . . . .

'Thank you for one of the most professional, educational, and beautiful web sites. I am a senior citizen and hate to admit history was one of my least favorite subjects in school. I also ordered the World History Wall Chart today and I'm looking forward to reading your online text in conjunction with the World History Chart ! '
'I got the chart and it is not just that I like it and the accompanying booklet, my wife is thrilled by it too. They should have this chart on the wall of every classroom, and the booklet could serve teachers to give students a quick and concise introduction into the major time frames and events making up our past. The chart would do the rest in generating interest for more detailed discoveries.'
'I put the chart immediately up in the hallway in our apartment, and within ten minutes, my roommates and I were already arguing the eurocentrism of so many curricula.
We discussed the relations between Europe and China in the 18th century, discussed contrasting theories of empire, facilitated by not just the listed events, but also by the major thinkers and artists of the period.
I'm sure this was just one of many interesting conversations to come. And to top it all off, it even looks nice and covers the empty white space in our halls.'

'I have said this before, but it bears saying again: the World History Chart is without a doubt one of the finest Web sites I have ever visited. I have the paper version and continue to spend many happy hours poring over it.'
