View Full Version : Historical audio books

I am looking for some audio books that are similar to SOTW, but secular. Does this even exist?

Or just some good audio books that are history-based.

I found the History of US but it is $25 per book for recording and there is no recording for the Story of Science as an audio book.

Or some good podcast or ???

I think most people agree that while SOTW is Christian it is still good enough to use. They just present the Christian bits as Myths, just like Greek, Roman, and Egyptian myths.

I did find this The Story of Mankind, Original Edition (Yesterday's Classics): Hendrik Willem van Loon: 9781599152110: Amazon.com: Books (http://smile.amazon.com/Story-Mankind-Original-Yesterdays-Classics/dp/1599152118/ref=cm_cr_dp_asin_lnk) . I haven't used it, but some of the (disgruntled) reviewers of SOTW on Amazon suggested.

I looked on Audible and found this: The History of the Ancient World Audiobook | Susan Wise Bauer | Audible.com (http://www.audible.com/pd/History/The-History-of-the-Ancient-World-Audiobook/B00CYNMAIG/ref=a_search_c4_1_1_srTtl?qid=1465102875&sr=1-1)

It is by Susan Wise Bauer (the same lady who wrote story of the world. I'm looking into it more) Found it on Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/History-Ancient-World-Earliest-Accounts-ebook/dp/B001PNYJ1C?ie=UTF8&*Version*=1&*entries*=0

And you can listen to the sample on Audible.
