Richard Braden is an ex-Army and Air Force Officer, an aeronautical engineer now retired, and the writer of fifteen adventure stories for teenagers and young adults. He and his wife, Pat, live in Lone Tree, Colorado, a suburb of Denver.
This humorous, opinionated history of the Western world covers over 4000 years of human progress from 2000 BC to the present day (2017). Take a crash course in the people and events that shaped our cultures and civilizations. As the author puts it, “You can read this book as you travel from NYC to Los Angeles by airplane and still get a couple hours of sleep.” And have a good time while doing so.
