Audio Book Summary

The authors devoted five decades to the study of world history and philosophy, culminating in the masterful eleven-volume Story of Civilization. In this compact summation of their work, Will and Ariel Durant share the vital and profound lessons of our collective past. Their perspective, gained after a lifetime of thinking and writing about the history of humankind, is an invaluable resource for us today. The rare archival recordings of the Durants in conversation, made from 1957–1977, illuminate our present condition and offer insightful guidance for the future.

“Prime historical data and observations of humanity’s past and its potential future…rich and witty counterpoints…This classic, influential work is handled impressively.”--AudioFile

    I don't like abridged audio books; but this one serves as an exception due to the author interviews that illuminate this book and the ideas behind it.
