Despite the stylish shortcomings, this set of lectures on the British History is highly digestible and to the point, I like the way Judd summerised the lecture into point form before every lecture.

So nice to listen to a course that does not have an ideological agenda.
Judd is smart and articulate.
As a Senior Citizen with spare time I wanted to have a simultaneous account of what went on during the centuries covered in this book, and found Denis Judd's story fascinating. He weaves the histories of east and west, as they affected Britain, with consummate skill, and held me spellbound. The division into manageable chapters with questions at the end of each from his students were an added bonus. I will return to this book again and again when I forget some detail as I am 83, and although enjoying new knowledge find it slips through the net too often. But Denis will be there with his lively descriptions for me to remember. Well done, I wish I had been taught History in High School in the same way. As I recall I was 'bottom- of the my class in this subject back in 1941. Maybe because my school was destroyed by Luftwaffe firebombs didn't help! Needless t say, the ability to listen to this book on my iPod with earphones whilst using my hands to garden or paint water-colours was something I had never had before,offering full use of every moment of my spare time. Everyone, young and old, should "read" this book.

I loved listening to this, awesome and in depth and truly revealing as to how and why we got where we are today. Thanks
