I have this in book form and it's a good overview - very useful for general knowledge revision. As an audiobook, however, it's very disappointing. No adjustments have been made for the audio format. There are even continual comments like "see page 150". It's just one long list of facts with very little narrative or commentary. Educational audiobooks ought to be along the same lines as lectures. I really hope there will be more of them! But there's no point in reading out an encyclopedia or dictionary.

This book was based on a sound idea and I looked forward to listening to it as I drive to and from work.
Perhaps the content was not fully what I expected but it recounted overly dry detail such as the reading through of the entire periodic table and thumbnails of Shakespeare's plays and the Brontes' books etc but for me it lacked real entertainment and the narration was really irritating.

This doesn't work as an audiobook. Too many references to 'see page...' and the mathematical formulas were too confusing to listen to without having a pen and paper to hand.
