Dr. Garland has a very engaging style of presenting historical events by taking us into those events as though we were direct participants.
I would recommend this course to anyone with historical interest, in particular the ancient world, who has been bored/turned off by dry, recital style of historical presentation.
I intend to seek out any other of his history courses - they are simply a pleasure to experience. You will seldom get better value for your listening dollar.

One of the challenges of reading history books is that they are often dry and boring. This professor presents history through the eyes of those people that lived it. His passion shines through his telling of the stories from different times of history. I thoroughly enjoyed this purchase.

I challenge you to find a person more passionate about their subject than Prof Robert Garland.
It's not just his knowledge of the subject that is staggering but how he lives and breathes the lives of the people he is talking about.
You can hear the passion for his subject in every word. It's simply inspiring.
This is the second of Prof Roberts lectures I've listened to and I'm eager to listen to more.

The earlier episodes were interesting, if unexceptional.
However; when Garland approaches more recent historical events he retreats into abject apologetic.
