I liked the style of this narrator. Combined with skillful writing, this book is easy to listen to. The English accent is not as strong as in some other audio history books. It is very detail, not at all just an overview, so if a short history is what you are looking for, this book is not for you. If you are seeking greater insight into the history of Greece, I would definitely recommend this book.
The description of all the political practices of the ancient nation states was fascinating and informative. Every type of government ever conceived was practiced by the Greeks or their neighbors, and nothing new under the sun has been invented. The descriptions included some analysis of the strengths and weaknesses of these forms of government, and these were used by our forefathers as they decided on how best to organize our government.
The history of Rome.
Listening to the book makes it all 3D, it gives depth to the descriptions and analysis that just is not there in the written text.
The description of the Spartan culture was fascinating, it reminds me so much of the modern communist societies. Everything was controlled by the state to include procreating, and the state was totally focused on defense.
