    Description

    The New York Times best seller.  

    Do tough times create tougher people? Can humanity handle the power of its weapons without destroying itself? Will human technology ever peak or regress? And why, since the dawn of time, has it always seemed as though death and destruction are waiting just around the corner? 

    Combining his trademark thrilling, expansive storytelling with rigorous history and thought experiment, Dan Carlin connects past with future to explore the tipping points of collapsing civilisations – from the plague to nuclear war. Looking across every brush with apocalypse, crisis and collapse, this book also weighs, knowing all we do about human patterns, whether our world is likely to become a ruin for future archaeologists to dig up and explore.  

    From the creator of the award-winning, 100-plus-million-download podcast Hardcore History.

    PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

    "Carlin puts the 'hardcore' in Hardcore History by focusing his narratives on the most violent and dramatic moments in human history, filling his show with colorful anecdotes that were most likely left out of your high school history class." (Time

    Dan Carlin at his best

    As a long-time listener of the Hardcore History podcast, I was thrilled to revisit some of Dan Carlin's greatest moments while discovering unexplored vistas by this great modern thinker. Dan's ability to scan hundreds of sources and to extract the drama, the moral dilemmas and the humanity (both good and bad) remains unparalleled. Thanks for the gift of your historical perspective, Dan, which makes it easier to grasp what being human means.

    missing some new material

    Dan Carlin is the master of story telling. But if you are a regular listener of Hardcore History this book is kinda just a resume.

    Good book (prefer podcast)

    Dan's personality shines through in this reading. I don't think the audio book would be the same if read by someone else. Overall the book is good. There's enough there to support his storyline and thoughts. As someone who has listened to the podcast though I have to admit that I prefer the podcast over the book.

    Just another hard core history podcast chapter...

    Which is actually a good thing! The transitions between various topics aren't always smooth. And yet, as always, you just can't stop listening to it

    summary of podcast material

    some of the podcast series are better. I didn't like the lack of cohesion and would like for Dan to focus on one period or story rather than history of humanity and beyond.. nevertheless happy to contribute and back Dan and thanks for all the free podcast material!

    If you're a fan of the podcasts you've heard this.

    Great content - don't get me wrong. However, most of this sounded familiar very quickly. Dan Carlin is good narrator of his material and this particular reading style, rather than more conversational or rambling people so enjoy, was also enjoyable.

    For the history fanatic & newbie alike

    Admittedly I went into this with a strong bias for all things Dan Carlin. What can I say... I'm a fan. That said I was also super critical going in and wasn't convinced Dan's style would translate in the more confined form that would be required for a written account.

    I was devastatingly wrong.

    This book is amazing. Have since passed it on to several mates who run the gambit from fellow history enthusiasts to outright historical newbies with little to know background.

    Dan presents this story in a way that is both rich with information and easy to digest. What I love most is that he isn't trying to sell you his opinion... Rather he likes leaving the question with you to bounce around in your head and give you enough perspective to be able to reach your own theories.

    Its just superb really.

    Thanks D. C for knocking this one out the park!

    Breathtaking, as all his creations

    Another breathtaking story by Dan Carlin that you can't put off until finished.
    Now he will scare you to death because he is right: the end is always near.

    A summary from Hardcore History Blitz

    This audiobook shows how ancient civilisations ended and how our world could have ended.
    I am a great Fan of Dan Carlins Podcasts and really enjoy his style of storytelling. He shows different point of views and uses a lot of sources. But this audiobook seems like an combination of different „hardcore history Blitz“ Podcasts.I felt that every chapter has already been told bevor in his Podcasts.
    I would recommend it for people who heard a few of his podcasts before and enjoyed it, but not for Fans who listend to almost every Hardcore History episode.
