Think of a few people from history (ancient & modern) and if you thought you wanted to know more about Aristotle, Lord Byron, Che Guevara & Billie Holiday this is your ticket - as long as you like your history on spoken word audio and with a comedic element. What would Aristotle make of todays society ? Why did Billie Holiday have such poor taste in men ? These are a couple of the serious questions posed, but mostly Mark Steel provides a very informative insight into their lives with a touch of humour. If you want kids to pay attention in school perhaps lessons should be like this.
