    Through the study of these time-honored myths, the Greek heroes and gods - including Heracles, Zeus, Achilles, Athena, Aphrodite, and others - leap from the page in all their glorious splendor. The following lectures are not only an entertaining guide to Greek mythology, but a fascinating look into the culture and time that produced these eternal tales.

    If you could sum up Classical Mythology in three words, what would they be?

    I have always wanted to learn more about Greek mythology and its meanings then and today. This course was both easy to listen too, learn form, and enjoy. The accompanying pdf transcription download from the writers site is also an incredible resource.
    Loved it

    More than a million listeners have thrilled to Bill O'Reilly's Killing Lincoln, the can't-stop-listening work of nonfiction about the shocking assassination that changed the course of American history. Now the anchor of The O'Reilly Factor recounts in gripping detail the brutal murder of John Fitzgerald Kennedy—and how a sequence of gunshots on a Dallas afternoon not only killed a beloved president but also sent the nation into the cataclysmic division of the Vietnam War and its culture-changing aftermath.

    The story is told just as riveting as reading it when I did. really enjoyed this.

    It is just a well told story with many twists and turns that make sense. If you like the political thriller with intrigue, you will love it.

    great again, only Marie's accent not quiet there but it is a women's voice so that is understandable.

    I could feel my anticipation and 'edge of seat' tension many times through out.
