PAST MISTAKES How We Misinterpret History and Why it Matters

by | Read by Alex Wyndham

History • 8.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2020

Narrator Alex Wyndham's smooth voice and English accent are perfect for this fascinating dive into the myths and mistakes in what we "know" about history. Think Pythagoras came up with the Pythagorean theorem? Quite possibly not. Did Christopher Columbus discover America? Definitely not. Were women always consigned to hearth and home? No. Mountain's audiobook is an engrossing look at a handful of erroneous beliefs about history, ranging from the color of ancient sculpture to aspects of America's Wild West. Wyndham's performance is nicely paced and varied--and he has a very pleasant voice. Most importantly, he sounds engaged with the historical stories he is telling, and that keeps the listener interested as well. G.S. © AudioFile 2021, Portland, Maine [Published: FEBRUARY 2021]
