4.0 out of 5 stars Not bad history book on major figures of the past a new edition would be nice. Nov. 29 2015
By bookreader - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Good Idea for a book and a nice amount of information, but some of the choice for pivotal leaders well I think they stretched their importance a little more than less. I let you decide on that overall the book was well done and provide a quick read lots of big events of the last several centuries of recorded history.

5.0 out of 5 stars Key to the collection is the identification of incidents in personal or public life that inspired them Nov. 16 2009
By Midwest Book Review - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Before They Changed the World: Pivotal Moments That Shaped the Lives of Great Leaders Before They Became Famous considers over twenty leaders whose deeds changed the world, and the events that shaped them. Key to the collection is the identification of incidents in personal or public life that inspired them to perform memorable feats that led to their fame and world contributions. Vintage black and white and color illustrations throughout make for an outstanding collection perfect for any general lending library.
