    In this companion volume to The Discoverers, Pulitzer Prize-winning historian Daniel J. Boorstin brings to life more than three thousand years of human artistic achievement, examining painting, sculpture, architecture, theology, philosophy, history, poetry, drama, literature, dance, music, and film.

    Overall

    I was disappointed in this title. I'd heard very good things about the book, so I suspect the real problem is with the recording being abridged. What's there is good, but it jumps from topic to topic somewhat randomly and doesn't go into anything with any depth. It has scared me off from purchasing The Discoverers as an audiobook; I'll probably try the print version instead.
