From Library Journal
This series of 13 essays on the themes and underlying lessons of history was originally written as part of the authors' 11-volume The Story of Civilization (1935-75). The Durants begin by summarizing periods and trends in history. They examine morals and draw conclusions by looking into changes in economics, politics, military customs, and even geographic location. Russ Holcomb reads these essays in a clear, pleasant voice, bringing life and interest to this brief overview of 5000 years of history. For general collections.

I've listened to this several times on the library's copy and finally decided to have my own so that I could listen easily from time to time. It's good to be reminded of such valuable lessons.
The recorded interviews on this edition are both charming and informative. They reinforce the content and give us further insights into their thinking.
