This is a great format to learn about ancient history. I listened while driving to/ from work. The instructor spoke clearly and has an easy-to-listen-to cadence.
There is no better way to pass time while stuck in traffic than to learn about past civilizations.

The book is intended as an introduction to the early civilizations of Mesopotamia and the middle east and covers the history of the region through the reign of the Persian King (and invader of Greece) Darius. The book is primarily geared to covering the political and military development of the region’s states and hence only touches upon topics such as religion and culture. However, given the time span covered it is unrealistic to expect such extensive coverage. If the reader is interested in just the political and military history the audiobook does its job. Another point that needs to be made is that the book is also a bit weak in its coverage of Persia. Despite being a major power and having a long history, Persia is covered in too short a time relative to the other states (many of which were relatively minor by comparison). Lastly, the audiobook is very well read, never monotone and always enthusiastic. In short, despite some minor weaknesses, highly recommended for those seeking an introduction to the nations of the period and their development and relations.

This CD is an excellent overview of civilizations of the Near East prior to 600 B.C.E.
Prof. Harl has a rather strident (strained) voice but if the listener can get past this
slight annoyance, then he/she will find this presentation interesting and informative.
I look forward to listening his other books on CD.

Only four stars--not five--because the vocal quality is, as mentioned above,
a bit strident and off-putting. Prof. Harl would benefit from soliciting the
services of a voice coach. Having taught for 40 years, I certainly understand
why he speaks so stridently. Difficult to be heard above the din of noisy
students. Still, to avoid voice suicide, I urge Prof. Harl to seek consultation
from his campus Speech and Audiology Dept.
