It's hard to imagine any other narrator performing this audiobook as effectively, and equally hard to imagine this narrator performing any work other than his own. A well-known British publisher and author, Richard Cohen has a strong, distinctive, heavily accented voice, untrained but engaging--a grandpa voice. It's one you grow accustomed to over time and eventually come to appreciate as his information-packed and idiosyncratic narrative unfolds. All the great historians are here--Herodotus, Tacitus, Gibbon--along with figures like Caesar, Machiavelli, and Churchill whom you wouldn't primarily class as historians. But who cares? Cohen is a gifted raconteur, informative, sometimes tiresome, but someone you can listen to anytime, anywhere, in any order and feel you've profited.
