It's probably a big ask, but can anyone recommend a World History book that I could read from cover to cover rather than use as a reference book?

I read (and love) a lot of 'popular' history books that focus on one period or another, and was wondering if there's anything similar out there that covers all of human history?

Bump - anyone? There's not a lot I want for Christmas and I'm being badgered for ideas grin

How about Gombrich - a little history of the world?

Thanks - not heard of that one but will check it out on Amazon.
