    Many of us were put off history by the dreary way it was taught at school. Back then 'The Origins of the Industrial Revolution' somehow seemed less compelling than the chance to test the bold claim on Timothy Johnson's 'Shatterproof' ruler. But here at last is a chance to have a good laugh and learn all that stuff you feel you really ought to know by now. Learn how Anglo-Saxon liberals struggled to be positive about immigration.

    Kirsty says: "An irreverent but relevant look at the past"
    "Funny and Informative"
    Overall

    I agree with the previous reviewer. I found his history detailed and insightful. It managed to blow the cobwebs off the traditional stuffy history text books and create something fresh, relevant and witty into the bargain. You come away learning a lot more than you think. I have listened to both his "Utterly" series (twice so far) and fingers crossed he comes up with another in the series.
