The entire material is an excerpt from professor's other audible book on History of Ancient Egypt. If you buy the latter, a longer listens indeed, you'll enjoy more and won't miss a single word out of this book.

If you could sum up Great Pharaohs of Ancient Egypt in three words, what would they be?
Bob Brier's got an affable manner and he really knows his stuff, he's a great tale teller, lecturer this is basic introductory material, and should be pretty much de rigueur for anyone who's interested in the Pharaonic timeline. This is a great place to start.
Great narration, one small complaint, the awful trumpeting fanfare they play at the beginning of every 35 minute lecture. Too loud and too raucous, overwrought. I'm laying in bed, not attending a Jousting match.
Otherwise this series is fine.

I so enjoyed this, apart from the dreadful fake clapping at the end of each segment and then a chunk of Brandenburg Concerto for no reason. I would buy many of these Great Courses but I have to grit my teeth for the clapping and music or fast forward, and I find myself sort of dreading that bit. Infuriating when it's such a good listen apart from that.

If you want a whistle-stop tour of the most famous figures in Egypt then this is perfect, an excellent way of learning some ancient history. The professor is so enthusiastic and it makes it all the more engaging.
good course. I would recommend doing this one before the longer Egyptian history course by the same lecturer so as to get an overview before diving in.
