A simplified education never had!

This concise book has taught me mode than my appalling education never did! To have this brief chronology and key events has been important.

I did speed up the narration to 1.3/as the narration is deep and slow and annunciated in such a posh, husky British accent, though I did get used to it. Overall, a book I needed to listen to at long last and showed my appalling lack of knowledge!

Pretty good. Don't stake the thesis on it.

If one is to condense the long and stories history of Britain to 50, it must be assumed certain events will be omitted.
At least once, the narrator said "untied" when " united " was the correct word. While it was amusing to hear about the kingdoms becoming untied, I honestly doubt that was the intent.
