Excellent - Entertaining and a sumptuous feast of knowledge,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: In Our Time: A companion to the Radio 4 series (Hardcover)
Imagine entering a room unobserved and listening in to conversations on a host of different subjects ranging from the Calendar, Socrates, the Peasants Revolt, Darwin, Black Holes, Alchemy and The Field of the Cloth of Gold, by a number of acknowledged experts on each particular subject.
This book, the contents of which have been garnered, from a selection of the BBC Radio 4 programme "In Our Time' is not only entertaining but accesses the reader to a diverse range of ideas and knowledge.
If you enjoy the programme, and there are many who do, this book is an excellent record and supplement to it.
If you are new to it, this book will not disappoint an enquiring mind and complete the gaps on many topics and provoke thoughts, long after you have finished reading it.
I loved the book and recommend it.
Go on -give your brain a 'work-out!'
