You'll need to start with Stephen Hawking's Brief History of Time if you want to know it all. It's quite a quick read, relative to the rest of what you'll have to read combined.

Bill Bryson's A Short History of Nearly Everything should cover it.

Not with the state of schools today. Some people have dire knowledge of history.

Jacob Bronowski, despite not being a historian as such, gives one of the most beautiful overviews of human development I've ever come across in The Ascent of Man. It's more like anthropology, really, or a kind of history of science -- but the scope goes a lot wider than that, drawing on culture, biology, geography, and politics.

I'd recommend watching the television series and using the book as a companion. Finding this series in my early twenties genuinely made me a more a more compassionate person. If I could redesign a history curriculum from scratch, I'd probably draw heavily on this work.

This will give you the basics, then you can research further individual topics. It is massive though.
