This is some basic bro stuff

Trivial, blah tales that are better suited for the back of a cereal box than under the title “Interesting Stories for Curious People”.

Nothing new here

If you watch the news , the history channel or the science channel you’ve heard it all before.
Waste of a perfectly good credit.

Geared Towards 7th Graders

This book will be a waste of time and money for any reasonably well-educated and well-informed adult. The performance is fine; the content is not.

Poor production quality and stories that are short

This seemed like it would be interesting, but the there are 69 chapters in a 5 and 1/2 hour book. Each "story" is around 5 minutes. They really don't go into enough detail to make it interesting, they are all like teasers with a little bit of facts. I would have rather had a third of the stories with about 4 times the details so I would feel like I learned something. The production quality isn't that good either. They read the table of contents for like 6 minutes. They also repeated a story in 2 chapters, so the editor either screwed up, or they didn't record one of the chapters and just tossed one of the ones already read in there in hopes no one would notice.

Good for elementary school kids

I thought these would be stories, not elementary school factoids. Not good for adults. Don’t waste your money.

Literally every word spoken

Incredibly annoyed that I had to suffer 5 minutes of the narrator reading all of the chapter titles and copyright disclaimer before the book even started.
As for the content, it's really not that interesting and the facts aren't a revelation.
