Narrators Jeff Woodman and Helen Litchfield alternate delivering the historical sound bites contrived by Kidder and Oppenheim to educate the masses. This work is similar to their first devotional, which promised the ability to "Roam Confidently with the Cultured Class." Here the narrators manage to avoid creating mind-numbing boredom as they elucidate upon seven topics, including politics and leadership, war and peace, rights and reform, business, building America, literature, and the arts. The 365 blurbs--each about a historical event or person of note, and a few related facts--are not exactly enlightening to anyone smarter than a seventh-grader--but there are a few tidbits that may beguile listeners and that could lead to fun family conversations or further academic exploration.
