THE MENTAL FLOSS HISTORY OF THE WORLD An Irreverent Romp Through Civilization's Best Bits

by | Read by Johnny Heller

Contemporary Culture • 15 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2008

Who says history has to be a dull collection of names and dates? Certainly not the guys behind THE MENTAL FLOSS HISTORY OF THE WORLD, who prove that history can be pretty darned entertaining when you include the saucy stuff often redacted from textbooks. Johnny Heller is owed a big share of the credit for making the sweep of history less intimidating with his occasional tongue-in-cheek delivery. But don’t take that to mean that this information isn’t accurate—it is. Heller and the boys from MENTAL FLOSS just know that it’s easier to listen to history when it’s presented as fun instead of a chore. Of course, there’s so much presented that it’s hard to retain all the facts and dates, but that’s what books (and studying) are for.
