    Story

    I greatly enjoyed this. Professor McWhorter was lively in his delivery, throwing in odd quirky comments, such as likening languages to his cat, but keeping the pace of information going well.

    I had thought I might want to alternate with listening to fiction, but this kept me engrossed while cycling and interested enough to swop over to listening to this rather than the radio while driving.

    For those wanting to judge the level you could probably put it as being similar to the In Our Time programmes, although of course those are debate, whereas this is a series of many short lectures.

    Language defines us as a species, placing humans head and shoulders above even the most proficient animal communicators. But it also beguiles us with its endless mysteries, allowing us to ponder why different languages emerged, why there isn't simply a single language, how languages change over time and whether that's good or bad, and how languages die out and become extinct.

Mrs's greatest hits:
  • A History of the World

    "Interesting and informative"

    Overall

    A great book that packs in enough detail to keep you interested, but not so much that you lose interest.



    The narrator was superb.

  • A Short History of Nearly Everything

    "Very entertaining"

    Overall

    A great read which was interesting all the way and well narrated.

    As the author stated at the start of the book, he wanted it to be factual and detailed but not to the level where you need a degree to understand what’s going on. This was achieved nicely.

    This is a very detailed and well written book about the world history. The book starts with the first evidence of mankind on Earth and takes it to the present. It is a fun to listen to the interesting anectodes and lesser-researched areas of the history. Each chapter focuses on a different aspect and the approach is clear and well documented. Recent research findings are also mentioned which makes the listening experience even more interesting. The narration is very clear and a pleasure to listen to.

    From the earliest civilizations to the 21st century: a global journey through human history, published alongside a landmark BBC One television series. Our understanding of world history is changing, as new discoveries are made on all the continents and old prejudices are being challenged. In this truly global journey, Andrew Marr revisits some of the traditional epic stories, from classical Greece and Rome to the rise of Napoleon, but surrounds them with less familiar material, from Peru to the Ukraine, China to the Caribbean.

    A collection of vivid, unforgettable stories from RAAF veterans about their experiences of combat in World War II. It is also an account of the strange, sometimes obsessive journey of the author himself, as he explores a passion held since childhood. From bomber pilots to fighter aces, from rear gunners to bomb aimers, from stories of death and fear to tales of humor and comradeship, Michael has helped unearth the extraordinary stories of ordinary men living and fighting in extraordinary times.

He takes subjects that normally bore the pants off most of us, like geology, chemistry, and particle physics, and aims to render them comprehensible to people who have never thought they could be interested in science. In the company of some extraordinary scientists, Bill Bryson reveals the world in a way most of us have never seen it before.

    One of the best selling History titles of 2009. Examining the Second World War on every front, Andrew Roberts asks whether, with a different decision-making process and a different strategy, Hitler's Axis might even have won. Were those German generals who blamed everything on Hitler after the war correct, or were they merely scapegoating their former Führer once he was safely beyond defending himself?

Each of these monarchs has contributed to the religion, geography, laws, language, and government which we live with today.

    A Short History of Nearly Everything is Bill Bryson's quest to find out everything that has happened from the Big Bang to the rise of civilization - how we got from there, being nothing at all, to here, being us. His challenge is to take subjects that normally bore the pants off most of us and see if there isn't some way to render them comprehensible to people who have never thought they could be interested in science. It's not so much about what we know, as about how we know what we know.

    This is the first volume in a bold new series that tells the stories of all peoples, connecting historical events from Europe to the Middle East to the far coast of China, while still giving weight to the characteristics of each country. Susan Wise Bauer provides both sweeping scope and vivid attention to the individual lives that give flesh to abstract assertions about human history. This narrative history employs the methods of "history from beneath" - literature, epic traditions, private letters, and accounts - to connect kings and leaders with the lives of those they ruled.

Its Great Pyramid of Cheops was the tallest building in the world until well into the 19th century and remains the only Ancient Wonder still standing. And it was the most technologically advanced of the ancient civilizations, with the medical knowledge that made Egyptian physicians the most famous in the world.

    Una de las figuras más controvertidas de la historia, dejó tras de sí un reguero de destrucción pero aún hay aspectos de la vida de Hitler que se deben iluminar. Que Hitler es una de las personalidades más relevantes del pasado siglo es algo que está totalmente admitido por cualquier persona, tanto si está interesada en la historia como si no. Es también un hecho admitido que conocer la biografía del Führer y la historia del Tercer Reich es la única manera de impedir que la historia de muerte y destrucción que se extendió por Europa se repita.

    En Junio de 1914 el asesinato del archiduque Francisco Fernando de Austria provocó la primera "guerra total" de la historia: un conflicto que cambiará el destino del mundo. Normalmente no se presta a la Primera Guerra Mundial la debida atención, las estanterías, rebosantes de libros sobre la Segunda Guerra Mundial, no tienen mucho sitio para su predecesora.

    La Breve Historia de los Austrias se centra en contar la historia de la Casa Habsburgo utilizando como eje estructural los gobiernos de los reyes Carlos V, Felipe II, Felipe III, Felipe IV y Carlos II. Además, no solo trata de explicar el desarrollo de cada reinado, sino que también lo ubica dentro del contexto histórico que se vivía en cada momento como, por ejemplo, la reforma protestante con Carlos V, la expulsión de los moriscos de España con Felipe III, la Guerra de los Treinta Años durante el reinado de Felipe IV, etc.

    Jesús Hernández nos recuerda que la Segunda Guerra Mundial, como un castigo penitenciario, duró seis años y un día, no hay otro modo de entender el episodio más terrible de la historia de la humanidad. Un conflicto que dejó una cantidad de muertos aún sin determinar pero que oscila entre los cincuenta y los setenta millones, una guerra que se extendió desde las costas del Pacífico hasta el norte de África.
