Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Durant’s history of Rome and early Christianity…is solid and well written—and narrator Grover Gardner’s easy professionalism does it justice…He varies intonation by matching the sense of the text without falling into repetitive patterns, and with his effortlessly perfect pacing, his narration flows like conversation, but not too informally…His is a self-effacing art that hides art; his reading is a demonstration of how to narrate intelligent nonfiction without effort or obtrusive mannerism, allowing the text to shine, never dull or repetitious, but consistently listenable and enjoyable.” AudioFile

Author Bio: Will Durant

Author Bio: Will Durant

Will Durant (1885–1981) was an award-winning American writer, historian, and philosopher. He and his wife were awarded the Pulitzer Prize for General Nonfiction in 1968 for Rousseau and Revolution, and he was a recipient of the Presidential Medal of Freedom. Durant spent over forty years writing the critically acclaimed eleven-volume Story of Civilization, the later volumes with the help of his wife, Ariel. He sought to revitalize history by unifying and humanizing the great body of historical knowledge, which had become voluminous and fragmented into esoteric subcategories. He also strove to bring philosophy to the common man. Durant was a champion of human rights, social reform, and the brotherhood of man long before they became well-known issues.
