In just over six hours, this audiobook presents a brief but vivid journey through geological time and the progression of mostly Western human civilization. Music separates each chapter and helps set the stage for the next chronological era in history, which ranges from dinosaurs to the birth of modern humans, ancient civilizations, classical empires, the Industrial Revolution, both World Wars, and current global warming.
