A small amount of time for a big overview
A fine way to get to know or refresh information about some great minds of humanity. It is always possible to dispute the writer's choice, but nobody could claim that the persons presented are without any value. The book contains nice stories, without going into too much detail - which would not be possible for a book of this format - and the voice of the speaker is pleasant and I was able to enjoy listening. The only drawback was the pronounciation of the foreign languages, be it family names, city names or book titles. They were really (more than) dreadfull.
