This book details everything from the Dawn Age with the children of the forest and giants to the rise of the Targaryen line. It goes into great detail of all the Targaryen kings, Robert's Rebellion, break downs of each region of Westros and histories of each noble family. Also a good section of the book goes into details of different regions beyond the Sunset Kingdoms where you get more information on the histories in each area.
The information given in this book is amazing and definitely worth the time. You learn lots of new small details that give you many "ah ha" moments that connect to current time lines occurring in the ASOIAF series.
I took my time reading this book, only reading one small section a day because you're given so much detail and I needed to give some of it time to sink in. I love reading peoples theories online of how the series is going to end and especially love reading all the tin foil theories because they get you really thinking.
Rather dry and tedious if read as a stand-alone.
