Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

In this third series offering-following The Intellectual Devotional: American History, the audio edition of which received a starred review, LJ10/1/08-the authors tackle the major talking points of modern culture in 365 short lessons. At its best, the book is informative; at its worst, banal. The daily entries are alternately read by series narrators Oliver Wyman (www.oliverwyman.com) and Helen Litchfield. The choice to mention the birth and death years of every notable person is useful but rather monotonous. Ideal for listeners looking to add a quick educational recap of the 20th century to their playlist. [Audio clip available through us.macmillan.com.-Ed.]
