how it works cover

Unlike other books that offer up humanity’s achievements in a top-ten fashion, Lightbulb Moments in Human History is written in a continual narrative from the witty and humorous perspective of its author.


As the title suggests, you can expect to discover some of the many milestones that define humankind, from the Neolithic Revolution of early agriculturists to the rise of the Roman Empire. You’ll also explore some of the concepts that shaped human lives, such as religion and misguided medicine.


In keeping with Scott Williams’ humour, which leans towards an adult audience in parts, throughout each chapter are amusing meme-style images to add further levity to the eccentricities of humankind.


Wit aside, this book is expertly written and packed with interesting information and educational insight into the past. Whether you’re a history buff or looking to expand your historical horizons, this book is a great read.

Rating: 5 out of 5 stars.  I loved this book. The writing is cute and funny. The book is lively and very well-paced, and once I started, I couldn’t put the book down. Every page held my attention. The cartoons are very funny as are their captions. As a history book, the subject matter was covered very well. As a fan of history, I found this book to be well worth reading. As a fan of humor, I found this book well worth reading.

"... quite brilliant in terms of the depth and fun analysis - this is NOT the history I learned at school - BUT I wish it had been."

Scott Edwin Williams takes the Mickey out of the human race’s spectacular flaws, but puts the Superman back into its greatest achievements... Scott’s approach, flavored with scintillating wit, dark humor and spiced with expletives, may not curry favor with the dogmatic, but it is served to the open-minded by an intelligent observer, who manages to evoke empathy and hope for the human spirit (and spirits).
Dr Micki Pistorius, 


[Lightbulb Moments in Human History: From Peasants to Periwigs] is a blessed relief – telling the history, but with a light touch and a comedic twist - for reading this is a genuine pleasure. Williams' prose is so smooth throughout, and his humorous anecdotes well chosen.
