The Challenge of Things joins earlier collections like The Reason of Things and Thinking of Answers but this time to collect Grayling's recent writings on the world in a time of war and conflict. In describing and exposing the dark side of things, he also explores ways out of the habits and prejudices of mind that would otherwise trap us forever in the deadly impasses of conflicts of all kinds.

I'm glad I've listened to this book. I have learned things which everyone should know, and which I, for one, was very ignorant about. Especially the bit about China. The subjects I knew more about are approached in a very intellectually stimulating way. The narrator is impeccable. Audiobooks have been a revelation for me.
