This spirited reading of Susan Wise Bauer’s The Story of the World Vol. 1: Ancient Times brings to life the stories and records of the peoples of Ancient Times, covering the major historical events from the beginning of civilization to the fall of the Roman Empire.

The Story of the World Audiobook is a collaboration between Jim Weiss, whose voice is “liquid gold” (CNN TV), and Susan Wise Bauer, whose writing has been described as “timeless and intelligent” (Publishers Weekly).

Enjoy this Audiobook independently, along with The Story of the World Vol. 1: Ancient Times, Text (sold seperately), or as a supplement to a traditional history curriculum.

Consider this: the baby is crying, raw chicken waits for you in the kitchen, and little Johnny wants you to read him the chapter about the Minoan Bull-Jumpers again. Do you really want to hinder his thirst for history? Of course not! But dinner won’t prepare itself…No problem, let Jim Weiss take it from here. He can read to your kids when you can’t!

This Audiobook is available as downloadable MP3s or as a multi-disc CD set.

What others are saying

  1. Question

    Would this work on an iphone? or a chromebook?

    • Yes! Any device that can download a ZIP file and can play MP3s will work. Both the iPhone and the chromebook would work. But since iphones don’t utilize ZIP files…for the iphone, you’d want to download the files onto a laptop or desktop first, put them in iTunes, and then “synch” them with the iPhone. If you have any questions about this, please email [email protected].

  2. Question

    Can this be downloaded onto multiple devices? I’m thinking of the computer and a phone.

    • Yes!

  3. Question

    Is it easy to navigate by chapter with the MP3s? In other words, can I go directly to “chapter 11” or will I have to fast forward and rewind through the audio to get what I want?

    • Yes! Each chapter (and in some cases, each half-chapter) is its own MP3 file, so you can click directly on that. You don’t have to fast-forward through hours of audio to find what you need.

  4. Question

    I’m a Korean reader who wants to buy this audio book for my kids’ home schooling. (they’re 6 and 7 years old)
    I wonder if you can tell me the WPM (Words Per Minute) of this audio book.
    Thank you.

    • It varies from chapter to chapter, but on average it is about 180 words per minute.

  5. Question

    My children have lost the CD/Chapter List? Is there one I could download? I am finding it very difficult to keep up with which CD and track we need for each chapter.

    • Yes, we have a PDF of that chapter list, and we are emailing it to you right now.
