This book gives an excellent description of the Greek, Egyptian and Roman history for about 500 years (400 BC to 100 AD) around the Mediterranean Sea and Middle East. It deals with philosophy, medicine, astronomy, physics, alchemy, geography, religion, war tacticts and more.... Such a wealth of knowledge. Not to mention the perfect narration.
Throughout the years I have red many parts of the world history. But after reading this book I was able to put all the pieces of the puzzle together. Now I have a pretty clear picture of the flow of History. And I begin to wonder how History will characterize our century……
A must read.
The author stuck in details and missed the bigger picture. Lots of names, places and dates which made very difficult to concentrate on. Add to that the monotonous narrator and you lose interest pretty fast. Not worth it.
Another side of CIA is profiled and events that led to 911 are presented with objectivity and clarity. A must know History for every Muslim and all Americans. Narration is great too.
I really enjoyed the book. A vivid representation of historical events around the Mediterranean Sea. I couldn't stop listening.
The past, the present and the future of the Chinese culture presented without bias and lively along with living conditions, aspirations and dreams of the people of China and China provinces. Perfect
I had to go back many times to make the connection which was pointless. I could not finish it.
