Description

"My kind of history!" says Terry Jones (Monty Python) of British History for Dummies.

Putting history into a perspective, this is an engaging, entertaining and educational trip through time, packing in equal parts fun and facts. Recently updated, British History For Dummies introduces listeners to recent events, including British actions in Afghanistan, and David Cameron's formation of Britain's first coalition Cabinet since World War II.

But don't worry - British History For Dummies doesn't skimp on the old stuff! It's a riotous, irreverent account of the people and events that have shaped Britain. Always got those kings and queens confused? Never sure what happened when? You need this audiobook. You'll hear rip-roaring stories of power-mad kings, executions, invasions, high treason, global empire-building, and forbidden love - not bad for a nation of stiff upper lips.

With more than 250 million books in print and more than 1,800 titles, For Dummies is the most widely recognized and highly regarded reference series in the world. Since 1991, For Dummies has helped millions make everything easier. For Dummies audiobooks offer listeners proven experts presenting even the most complex subjects in plain English.

historical and punnie

If you like British hummer this book is for you. Full of facts, puns and has the feeling like your at the pub hanging with the professor. It's a book that is not in order but rather more like a conversation. Make sure to read though a few times.

I enjoyed it

I'm a keen history reader, and would like to think (it's possible i'm wrong haha) that I'm one step above a dummy. However, I had credits to burn and this caught my eye. It was an enjoyable listen, I certainly learned a number of things. The narrator's delivery was excellent and I'd definitely recommend it to anyone who wants to tackle British history and enjoy it as they journey through time.

Great overview of British History!

A great place to start if you’re looking for the history of Britain and the beginning of the Monarchy. It is superbly narrated and a terrific listen. I just finished listening for the second time. It has lead me to other books on British History and now I’m hooked.

Viel Information wird mit trockenem Humor präsentiert

Einfach zu verstehen, auch für diejenigen, welche über eher durchschnittliche Schulenglischkenntnisse verfügen. Dennoch geballte Wissensvermittlung, kritische Denkanstöße und dezenter Humor, der keine Langeweile aufkommen lässt ohne dass es dadurch zu einem Niveauverlust kommt. Das BBC-Englisch des Sprechers war Balsam für die Ohren.

Geschichtsfakten geballte Ladung

Sehr komplex, intensives. Zuhören ist gefragt. Sehr viele Georges, Edwards und Henries bewegen hier Weltgeschichte.
