About the Amazing People series:
A unique opportunity for learners of English to learn about the exceptional lives and incredible abilities of some of the most insightful people the world has seen.

Each audiobook contains six short stories, told by the characters themselves, as if in their own words. The stories explain the most significant parts of each character's life, giving an insight into how they came to be such an important historic figure.

After each story, a timeline presents the most major events in their life in a clear and succinct fashion. The timeline is ideal for checking comprehension or as a basis for project work or further research.

Created in association with The Amazing People Club.

What the Critics Say

"As a teacher using the Amazing People ELT Readers in an Extensive Reading Project, I'm as happy as my students are: motivating topics/real people, interesting facts and a great alternative to Graded Reader fiction. Having said that, the same class is also reading books from the Agatha Christie series, and enjoying them very much. Their Reading Diaries are full of questions, speculation about who-dunnit and comments about 'unputdownability'. The buzz in the classroom when we're swopping books is tangible." (Hania Bociek, Zürich, Switzerland)
