It was only an hour and I knew that going in, but it turned into a litany of strange names and battles. The only context we got was the Mandate of Heaven; there was no other culture/continuity or context to hold on to. It wasn't useful to me.

Best get it in Whispersync

A brief history of a fixed period in the history of China's rulers. I had some difficulty relating the information in the text to the map at hand. I wish that the narrator had been more skilled in the art of lecture, as he sped through the piece too quickly for note taking. The information itself seemed well researched and presented.
