    In this updated version of the classic of popular Egyptology, Barbara Mertz combines her doctorate in Egyptology at the famed Oriental Institute of the University of Chicago with a life-long enthusiasm for ancient Egypt. Her love of the subject is contagious and makes her the perfect guide to ancient Egypt for the student, the layman, and those who plan to visit or have visited the Nile Valley.

    Ethan M. says: "One of the best history books on Audible"
    "disappointed in my fellow reviewers."
    Overall

    Is it just me? I could only take 3 hours of this and had to quit. What are the other reviewers getting out of this disjointed/dated text. The author is ALL over the place, tangent after tangent. Stephen Ambrose, David McCullough, Simon Winchester, Nathaniel Philbrick- I have several books by each of the authors and learn alot about the subjects of their particular books. I know very little about ancient Egypt and this book gave me zero more information, but I did get the author's biased views on many subjects NOT related to ancient Egypt. AND the narrator was just bad. Her toned of voice just grated on me. How could someone give this book a 5 star( and many reviewers did!!)?? Sorry, I just don't get it.

    Brimming with enthralling details and personalities, Toby Lester's The Fourth Part of the World spotlights Martin Waldseemüller's 1507 world map and recounts the epic tale of the mariners and scholars who facilitated this watershed of Western history.

    Overall

    a good listen. Although is WAS helpful to go online to view/download the various maps that are referenced to throughout the story. Actually it is absolutely required to understand what is being said. But it is easy enough to do.
