Concise and elegantly written non-fiction audiobooks help you learn the core subject matter in 20 percent of the time it takes to read a typical book. Life is short, so explore a multitude of fascinating historical, biographical, scientific, political, and financial topics in only an hour each. 

The year was 1381. The English government had failed its lower classes time and again with repressive labor laws and high taxes, and the peasants had had enough. In an unprecedented outburst of force, the peasants revolted against their leaders in a bloody march on London, burning buildings and killing government officials. 

The movement didn’t end there, though; it spread all over England, with Richard II trailing behind to suppress it. This audiobook delivers the fascinating history of this historical event that forever changed not just British history, but the world’s history.

Listen to this before the coming peasants’ revolt

The ivory tower Marxist professors are rallying the masses to foment another revolt, but this time instead of a revolt against lamentable working conditions and lack of food, it will be for safe-spaces, weird pronouns and compelled speech. If we don’t learn from our past, we might think that things are as bad today as they ever have been, and that fascism is actually still a thing, and that the president of the US of A is as bad as Stalin.

Learn about conditions actually worth revolting against, before starting the next revolution and making peasants of us all.

Content was well organized and narrated.

Info packed

This is the fifth book I’ve read/listened to by In60 Learning. I enjoy the way they cover a subject- touching on or explaining aspects one would not usually learn in school or from “historical” movies. They don’t “take sides”, instead, covering many aspects of the topic.

This is the first book I’ve listened to by this narrator ( Russell Newton ). He does ok reading this but it does still feel a little stilted. There’s an annoying metallic noise in the background of the recording.


There are no explicit sex scenes, excessive violence or swearing.

Excellent, concise, comprehensive.

A very well written, excellent summary of the peasants revolt.
Suitable for a curious history novice, or perhaps a historian looking for a revisionary essay.
This book describes the background history of the revolt, the living conditions and attitudes. It names the leaders of the revolt, includes famous quotes of the time, a summary of the marches and raids. It describes the consequences of the revolt for the people, the elite and the country’s domestic and foreign politics.
The writing illustrates the attitudes between the classes throughout this era and touches upon wider issues that gained a footing after the revolt.

The narrator has a pleasant voice and reading style. He maintained my interest in the writing, he is American so pronounces some of the towns with an American accent but it detracts nothing from the book.
I will look for more audios by this author and would happily listen to this narrator for hours on end.
