A History of Just About Everything by Elizabeth MacLeod and Frieda Wishinsky

This book had a lot of great information about 180 things that changed the world.  I think they missed a few things like the Challenger explosion and maybe left some things out - the hostage crisis part of the Iranian Revolution but overall I think they did a good job of compiling important things in history.  Each entry was concise.  This book would be great for background knowledge, a stepping stone to further research, a debate over what was and was not included.  I liked it.
