Disappointed in Birmingham

Timothy Shutt is an excellent presenter but the co-readers in this work are terrible and make it, amost, unbearable. I hate to see (or hear) an outstanding lecturer have his name attached to a work virtually worthless simply by his choice of co-lecturers. I expected so much more.

Finally!

Any additional comments?

I bought the whole series of lectures called, “odyssey of the west.” Even though Professor Timothy Shut is indeed a very learned man, I am glad he did not contribute as much to this set of lectures.
The modern scholar series ought to re-record the whole series WITHOUT Timothy shutt as the host. That will make it a stellar contribution to our intellectual discovery.

Enjoyable and informative

A very good overview and introduction to the works themselves. Some of the professors are difficult to follow and require multiple listenings.
