Summary

A New York Times pick for "Best Audiobooks for Road Trips with Kids"

Exclusively on Audible, hilarious history for ages eight and up.

Fasten your falx knives and grab the reins of your quadriga: Rivals 2! More Frenemies Who Changed the World is the funniest look at people who benefited the world through their hatred.

Hear how the rivalry between Edison and Tesla literally changed the course of electricity, how sports fans nearly toppled the Roman Empire, how geniuses Chanel and Schiaparelli empowered women worldwide and had the greatest rivalry that wasn’t, and how the feud between Joe Frazier and Muhammad Ali was so intense more people tuned in to their fight than watched Neil Armstrong set foot on the moon two years earlier.

This audiobook has it all: death beams, chariot races, flaming costumes, ear-munchers, party fleas, and whatever the opposite of epic poetry is.... No fact is too bizarre, no segue too surreal, and no sequitur is too non for this riotous sequel.

Now available in Dolby Atmos on Audible.

Great Writing, Even Better Series

Rivals 2 is a great book, it fuses comedy and history in ways that seemed impossible to do! Be sure to see Rivals 1! I wish to see more books in the incredible Rivals series.

Volume!

All together,This is a good book.However,sometimes,it becomes loud,and quiet at random voices…So it’s annoying to have to
change the volume to loud,and then suddenly have to change it to quiet.Other than that,it is good.Especially because the stories are a…

Another great one from Scott Mcormick

After listening to the first book, I found that the rivalries in this one are slightly more obscure than the former book. Which by the way is a good thing! I love learning about history and I’m also in secondary where we do a lot of history and hopefully I’ll be able to use this knowledge learned moving forward in school!
