Some colleges are already using the World History Chart & Book as required textbook reading in the Humanities.
Some famous people who have used the Chart in the past.
|A small sample from hundreds of testimonials :|
'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.'
'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 ! '
'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.'
'I've 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.'
'I put the chart immediatly up our hallway, 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 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've 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. The Web site is a
wonderful implementation of that wonderful tool.'

'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 . . . . '
