The Audiobook brings history to life with this spirited reading of the Text by renowned narrator Jim Weiss. Save time by listening on the road or while preparing dinner, or let it lull the children to sleep at bedtime.

Product Overview

Investigate the fascinating story of the modern world, from the American Civil War through the end of the twentieth century – from Europe and the Middle East through India, China, the Arabian Peninsula, Australia, and both North and South America! Read by Jim Weiss, it can be enjoyed independently, read along with the Text, or used as a supplement to a traditional history curriculum.

Consider this: it’s almost time for lunch, your toddler is attempting to scale the mountain of laundry that hides the washing machine, and little Sally wants you to read her the chapter about the Space Race again. Do you really want to hinder her thirst for history? Of course not! But what about lunch? And that laundry won’t wash, dry, and fold itselF . . .  No problem. Let Jim Weiss take it from here. He can read to your kids when you can’t!

    Files are difficult to access and use

    Calyn Hauck (verified owner)

    I’ve spent an hour trying to get the files to play on my device. They do not easily open in any audiobook or music app.

    I have a printed text book and activity book, and cds. But one of my cd was ruined. I’d prefer to get the download as that will be easier. How different is the revised version from the last version?

    So far, so good

    LYDIA GORDON (verified owner)

    I was a little worried that I wouldn’t be able to access the MP3 files on my android device after reading another review, but I didn’t have much problem. After downloading and extracting the files, I wanted to open them in Spotify, but no luck there. I tried Youtube music app with success.

    This is the third time I’ve been through all four volumes of SotW and the second time using audio. I bought the CDs five years ago. It would’ve been nice to get a discount since I already own the CDs and would gladly return those clunky things, but alas I am too lazy to reach out to customer support.

    I don’t mind Jim Weiss’s manner of reading, but it drives some of my household nuts. He dramatizes the reading, and it’s pretty heavy-handed at times.

    Jessica M. (verified owner)

    After seeing the reviews about the mp3 version, I was hesitant to purchase it. However, I was able to download and play it with ease on my iphone.

  5. Question

    Meagan

    Is there a way I can purchase and send these books in an audio format as a gift? This person has limited mobility and needs to use a smartphone. I have no idea how to do this, I know they are using some kind of service for most of their books like audible or amazon or something, I didn’t know if it was available through other services besides your website. How do I surprise them with a gift like this?
    Also…am I missing something? The first book is only $15, and that is the regular price, but the ones on “sale” can be over $40. Maybe there’s some kind of typo or different audio editions I don’t know about…maybe it’s just supply and demand? Anyhow, I’d love to know more about how to make this work. Contact me soon please.

      We aren’t on streaming services for these audiobooks yet, but we’re working on it! As we become available on different services, we will announce it in our newsletter and on social media. Some of the non-SOTW Jim Weiss titles are already available for streaming on various services

      If they would be interested in an mp3 that they would play in an audiobook app, we can help you send it as a gift – just email us at [email protected] and we’ll get you sorted.

      Our products come in different formats, so there is a range of pricing on each title. At this time, the regular price for the Volume 1 mp3 is $27.95. We sometimes have Scratch & Dent versions of physical products, and when Scratch & Dent is available for this CD, it’s about $16, and retail for the regular CD is currently $39.95.

      I hope this is helpful! Please email [email protected] if you would like more information about any of this; we are happy to help.

    Perfect Option

    Sonya Haidet

    We have opened these with an iPhone, android device, on our laptop and for on the go it’s perfect! Our 9 year old opens the files and listens to his next lesson without instruction! They’ve grown up with these audio files over the past 4 years and it has been a huge base in their education. Thank you for such a great option for large families!
