KNOWING WHAT WE KNOW The Transmission of Knowledge: From Ancient Wisdom to Modern Magic

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Simon Winchester

History • 14.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2023

Few author/narrators sound as richly knowledgeable as Simon Winchester, the prolific British popular historian whose cosmopolitan voice has distinguished more than two dozen of his audiobooks on that many different subjects. Here he addresses the subject of knowledge itself--how knowledge has been transmitted and received over the centuries. Vast as that topic might sound, Winchester's focus is always specific and insightful, especially when he tracks the spread of the news of the Krakatoa volcano eruption in 1883 or the endurance--and sometimes suppression--of several iconic news photos. Winchester is not just the best narrator of his own work, he is also unequaled in his ease, grace, erudition, and a lengthy list of other outstanding attributes. D.A.W.
