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.

  1. Question

    We have the 7 CD set of volume 1 . We have lost the first Cd . Can we purchase the single cd we need?

    • Yes! You can buy individual disks for 5 dollars. Please call our office at 1.877.322.3445.

  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.

  6. Question

    I see there’s revised versions of volume 3, and 4 being released within a year, and I am wondering if there will be revisions to volume 1 and 2?

    • Volumes 1 and 2 were already revised…we did it all the way back in 2006 & 2007. If your copy of Volume 1 has a wolf with 2 human babies on the front, it is the revised edition. If your copy of Volume 2 has Robin Hood on the front, it is the revised edition.

  7. Question

    Hi. We are a homeschool co-op studying history this year and will all be contributing towards the purchase of these audio files. Will it be OK to download one copy and distribute it between all students who have paid? thx

    • No, that is not allowed; that would mean that each student had acquired the audiobook for a fraction of the price. Each student needs to purchase his or her own copy.

  8. Question

    I have the story of the world book. I need all the other parts of the bundle. What’s the best way to purchase just what I need?

    • You would want to purchase the rest of them individually: activity book, extra set of student pages, tests.

  10. Question

    Hi There

    I’m not very technical and was wondering if you could help me out. I want to be able to download the MP3 files onto my iphone so my kids can listen in the car. I see below you need to download them onto a pc first and then synch in itunes. I have a very basic windows pc – will this work? Thanks, Emma

    • Yes, it will work. If you don’t want to go through that process, there’s also a free app called “Documents” that you can put on your iPhone, which then allows your iPhone to unzip the ZIP folders that our audiobooks come in; that way you don’t have to go through the PC step at all. It can be downloaded for free at https://apps.apple.com/us/app/documents-5-file-manager-pdf-reader-and-browser/id364901807

  11. Question

    Will these audiobooks be available on Audible anytime soon?

  12. 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 support@welltrainedmind.com.
