The premise of this book is outstanding. Understanding the development of our modern world in the context of a single day was compelling.
BUT I could not tolerate the lame jokes, wise cracking metaphors, and snide references to current events. Regrettably, the narrator struggles with the puerile tone. And that combination had me throwing in the towel.
An alternative I'd recommend is Bill Bryson's At Home.
