Very good intro to life and works of Shakespeare
Having been through several full audiobooks of SmartPass' Shakespeare series, I gave this "Guide to the Works" a try. It is very well done, and gives a lot of insight into the life of William Shakespeare, his style development, the Big Plays, etc. I found it more informative than Bill Bryson's "Shakespeare".
On top of the biography part, there are many interesting excerpts of the major plays.
The one downside to this audiobook is that the last 45-60 minutes that covers major themes requires quite a lot of prior knowledge of plays like MacBeth, Merchant of Venice, and Romeo and Juliette.
