Critic Reviews

"The five-volume Basic History has gained a well-deserved reputation for combining insight with simple narrative style." (AudioFile)
"Carson's full-scale treatment of American history combines scholarly exactness with evocative passages that lead the listener to a clearer understanding of the people and events, the triumphs and the shortcomings, which have shaped this nation....For Carson, history is the product of the actions of countless individuals, each under the influence of certain ideas. And Carson explores those ideas, ideologies, and 'isms.'" (The Freeman)

Horrible Reading

Is there anything you would change about this book?

If you want to hear scratchy sound then this is the book for you!

What could Clarence B. Carson have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

Have someone else read it

How did the narrator detract from the book?

Have a male voice?

Did A Basic History of the United States, Vol. 2 inspire you to do anything?

Stop listening to it!
