Found this method whilst trawling through audible languages, free sample section. Just finished the German sample and found it most rewarding - easy to follow and learn. Michel Thomas is really onto something!

To look back at the past is to understand the present. In this vivid account of over 4,000 years of British history, Simon Schama takes us on an epic journey which encompasses the very beginnings of the nation's identity, when the first settlers landed on Orkney.

Our History in words

Having seen the BBC TV programme and having bought the book, I was delighted to see this volume as audio. I absolutely love this era of our history, particularly the dying embers of Anglo Saxon Britain but also the Tudor age. Written by Simon Schama with such dexterity, keeping the reader interesting at all points and superbly read by Timothy West, an actor of distinction. A super 'listen'.

Carlos Castanada was a student of anthropology when he met Don Juan Matus, a Yaqui shaman and the inspiration for Castanada’s The Teachings of Don Juan. In this controversial work, Castanada relays his experiences being challenged by his mentor on his perception of the world and all living things in it.

Well, having read the book at least eight times over the years, I was delighted when I saw it was in audio format recently. I listen to the book when there is quiet around (which I feel is a must) as you need all your concentration to fully absord the wonders which are presented to you. The use of an American/Latino reader -Luis Mareno- adds to the sense of reality of the piece. I will be moving on to part two shortly and have just purchased A Separate Reality parts 1 & 2 also! Happy Days!
