Big History: The Big Bang, Life on Earth, and the Rise of Humanity
- By: David Christian, The Great Courses
- Narrated by: David Christian
- Length: 24 hrs and 26 mins
- Original Recording
How is it possible for the disciplines of cosmology, geology, anthropology, biology, and history to fit together? These 48 lectures answer that question by weaving a single story from accounts of the past developed by a variety of scholarly disciplines. The result is a story stretching from the origins of the universe to the present day and beyond, in which human history is seen as part of the history of our Earth and biosphere, and the Earth's history, in turn, is seen as part of the history of the universe.

Carl Sagan, writer and scientist, returns from the frontier to tell us about how the world works. In his delightfully down-to-earth style, he explores and explains a mind-boggling future of intelligent robots, extraterrestrial life and its consequences, and other provocative, fascinating quandaries of the future that we want to see today.
Excellent :) A must read for those looking to lear

Excellent book and narration
Would you consider the audio edition of Broca's Brain to be better than the print version?
Any additional comments?
The audio was bad for some Chapters. I tried downlouding the audio again, changing to another device, changing headphones, etc, but nothing worked.
