Once you get used to the tone of the narrator it's very good, but he is very dry. I just finished listening to the Greatest Courses audiobook The Vikings, and this book basically reiterated everything that was in that lecture but in a more story-like and less lecture-like fashion. I enjoyed both and this book had a lot of slightly different perspectives and a few more details that weren't in the Greatest Courses lecture that were interesting. Definitely recommend if you're into Viking history.

Very fun history of the vikings, if somewhat simplistic. Good and integrated combination of history and myth.

Having received followed an Anglo-centric history curriculum at school, I knew about the wicked Vikings, danegeld and the Danelaw. This book is a very informative introduction to the rest of Viking history. Worth a listen, if only to discover the name of the first European born in North America.
