What a delight! I was saddened to hear it end and had wished there was more. Don't be pushed out by the old man's lack of humbleness and sometimes closed-mindedness.
pretty brilliant... and so on point on this day after Election 2016... excellent observations and summaries of general world history that are relevant and applicable right now, today, to us...chapters are short and easy.. their interviews are also good... agree or disagree with their opinions and suggestion in the interviews, but this is definitely a worthy read...
Interesting of many of his other books on history.
Very good, but I'm prejudiced to his intense study and research for writing.
I would recommend.

Learn, understand, then decide whether you accept or reject.
Don't expect individual stories of historical figures, and instead treat yourself to the moral of their collective stories.
This book is incredibley well written and narrated. An everlasting obelisk of wisdom that you will listen to many times. If you are looking to make sense of our world and understand why? This is it.

Thought provoking. Best known for The Story of Civilization, 11 volumes written in collaboration with his wife Ariel Durant and published between 1935 and 1975. In this book, thru a series of interviews and extracts from The Story of Civilization, the focus is on finding the meaning and Key messages of history.
I really liked the amount of detail in Tia, and the recordings of the authors reinforced their themes. Their error, in the success of Communism, is understandable, given when this was written, but so many other accurate observations make this a very good 'read.'
