Professional reviews

"The author of HOW THE SCOTS INVENTED THE MODERN WORLD has produced an epic. This sprawling audiobook covers the lives of the two leaders and opponents in detail from cradle to grave. The presentation shifts back and forth between the two protagonists in comprehensible blocks that are chronological and generally easy for the listener to follow. Still, the cascade of people and place names, dates and campaigns can be overwhelming. John Curless gives a flawlessly paced, no-frills narration in clear BBC English. He meets the many pronunciation challenges with aplomb, with the odd exception of SATYAGARHA (the core concept in Gandhi's philosophy), of which he always seems tentative.
