The narration gets better after a few chapters

It was enjoyable, if you like history and facts with a spin. Top 5 Lists were a prominent writing style a couple years ago (thanks BuzzFeed) and a good chunk of this book is also in that format. When the book diverges away from that style is when it is most entertaining.

Great listen

This book is great! It's fun and interesting. I like how Proops' personality really shines. It's like listening to an extended episode of his podcast.

Great read

If you were a fan of the podcast, you'll love the book. Roman emperors, baseball, music, women's rights, and all the boring preachy parts. They're all in here.

Gotta love Proops.

Proops is the man. Lots of information on just about everything. Time to go read.

Smartest review in the world

Listen up kittens! Make daddy a vodka flavored vodka drink and tuck into a heaping helping of auditory awesomeness.
