    Story

    In the History of the World, Updated, J. M. Roberts has revised his monumental previous work, History of the World, taking into account the great range of discoveries that have altered our views on everything from early civilizations to post-Cold War globalism. Large portions of text have been rewritten, addressing events as recent as the relationship between the Arab and Western worlds in the wake of the September 11 attacks.

    Alan Rither says: "Comprehensive world history"
    "too general for me"
    Overall

    So many people gave the audio such a good review that I cannot bear to slander the book. I just found it so general that it could not grab my interest. I believe history buff's who are familiar with details will enjoy it more, and appreciate how he threads the epocs together. I made it through 3 downloads by shere determination, but am giving up.

    Story
    (104)

    Johnson's monumental history of the United States, from the first settlers to the Clinton administration, covers every aspect of American culture: politics, business, art, literature, science, society and customs, complex traditions, and religious beliefs. The story is told in terms of the men and women who shaped and led the nation and the ordinary people who collectively created its unique character.

    Mike From Mesa says: "A British conservative's view of American history."
    "a good book for long travels"
    Overall

    This book is well written. History is told in a perspective not told in any school I ever attended and was refreshing. I listened to every hour of it and might even listen to it again in a year or so. The narrator has an english accent which made for easy listening.
