Thought provoking. Best known for The Story of Civilization, 11 volumes written in collaboration with his wife Ariel Durant and published between 1935 and 1975. In this book, thru a series of interviews and extracts from The Story of Civilization, the focus is on finding the meaning and Key messages of history.
I really liked the amount of detail in Tia, and the recordings of the authors reinforced their themes. Their error, in the success of Communism, is understandable, given when this was written, but so many other accurate observations make this a very good 'read.'
I found so much value in this audio book that I will be buying the book and listening to the audio version again! Everything that has occurred before is occurring again and will occur again unless we reach a synthesis.
The music in the background was little too loud especially when Mr Durant was talking. It was little hard to understand what he saying and the music made it harder to listen to him.
Otherwise a great book!!!
