Professor Hosking deserves a big kiss on both cheeks for having made my recent training runs at least mentally enjoyable! 16 hours (for both parts) of European history, told in the most melodic British English - highly recommendable! Especially for someone like me, with gaping holes in history knowledge due to uninspired teachers and Soviet-centred curriculum...
I like to learn interesting stuff on midnight runs. And I need absorbing children's audio to stay sane on long car journeys.
Another winner from Modern Scholar. Easy and enjoyable to listen to. A decent introduction to the subject.
"Erudite but boring"
The professor is very knowledgeable and articulate. The lectures bored me. Perhaps that was the Middle Ages. Perhaps that was the course.
