Truly enjoyable narrative of world history that provides a nutshell view of why we are where we are today. I appreciated the irony and satire provided by the author, he did a great job throwing in subtle and smart jokes into what is, after all, a book about history. Great listen.
The great thing about history is that it is all memorable and interesting... I enjoyed his accounts of the Greeks and of the World Wars.
The British accent, just makes it all more genuine.
No, a few small chuckles here and there, but nothing crazy.
If you enjoy history, but can't be bothered by dates and other boring facts, give this book a whirl.
