3.33 out of 5
(4 customer reviews)


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!

    So far, so good

    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.
