politically judgmental statements

The content of this book is excellent and for the most part well written. It consists of five parts, the first of which is like an executive summary with the others dealing in depth, respectively, with classical antiquity

especially helpful in allowing the reader

This is an excellent audible one star was deducted for writing style, which could have been improved. Also, I believe that much more content should have been dedicated to the genocide that Armenians were subjected to by the Turks before and during...

No mention of the real reason Berlin Wall fell.

I wasn't impressed with no mention of Ronald Reagan's speech at the Berlin Wall. Although read mentioned. For that,

Interesting read

This book succeeded in presenting a general overview of the major events that took place in Europe as well as evens that were undertaken by Europeans throughout the world over the past 2,500 years. Some events, epochs, ideas of phenomena were covered in significant detail, while others were skimped over. It has however broadened my perspective on European history and inspired me to look into several topics in greater detail that I had either had never heard of or knew very little about prior to listening to this work.

The narration was well articulated but could be a monotone at times.

Very shallow effort

Very pricey for such a thin volume with the print being so large and the information being so shallow it simply skims through the history of an entire continent at breakneck speed

Important moments in European history

This is a very limited history that is far to short on specifics. I should have known better than to buy this. You cannot cover the history
