New edition - featuring updated introduction and new chapters.
The giant characters of history - from Mozart to Michelangelo, Shakespeare to Einstein, Henry VIII to Hitler, Catherine the Great to Margaret Thatcher, Jesus Christ to Genghis Khan - lived lives of astonishing drama and adventure, debauchery and slaughter, but they also formed our world and will shape our future.
In this eclectic and surprising collection of short and entertaining life stories, Simon Sebag Montefiore introduces his choice of kings, empresses, sultans and conquerors as well as prophets, explorers, artists, actresses, courtesans and psychopaths. From the ancient times, via crusades and world wars, up to the 21st century, this accessible history introduces listeners to the titans who changed the world: the characters we should all know and the stories we should never forget.

Historical Character Snippets and Tasters!
Titans of History is literally a chronological collection of abridged biographies which was, for me, a snippet or taster of the particular individual and perhaps a hook to explore them in more detail as this book offers no references or sources of its information.
The narration is done clearly and well by Steve West (at first I thought it may be the author himself).
The audiobook is broken down into chapters per character and so was easy to flip through quickly, slow down where it was interesting to me, or repeat where I wanted to hear something again.

Worth listening. I wonder if somebody has noticed (not from the book), that most of the "Titans" (positive & negative ones as well), have something in common.
