This audio book is an epic and enchanting journey through the history of our world. Andrew Marr has done a fantastic job of turning events and dramas of the past in to a story easily accessible to all. It really is all encompassing, with all parts of the world given appropriate airtime and the interconnected nature of the whole human race really comes through. I particularly like the impartial nature of the narrative, which isn't afraid of debunking commonly held historical myths. I can't get enough of this audio book, it can be listened to over and over, each time you pick up on a snippet you may have previously missed. Perpetually fascinating. Thank you Andrew Marr!
"Heavy going but highly salient!"
I've not got through it all yet, but feel I can make a few useful comments. It's a really fascinating and pertinent narrative of how the minority world has progressed to the detriment of the majority world. It contains facts and details I believe we should all take on board and use to try to redress the inequalities that exist. However, it is heavy going and the flow is a little slow due to its very academic style. Definitely worth a listen I would say. Good to take in in small doses.
