Bought the AUDIO version for my son's Western Civ studies this year in our home school as a SUPPLEMENT. Well, Prof Esolen is SO GOOD that he has already listened to half of these lectures and SCHOOL HASN'T OFFICIALLY STARTED YET!! Now, I cannot think of a better endorsement than a 17.5 year old young man being riveted to the cd player on a summer afternoon the week before school starts and NOT YET REQUIRED to listen.....what do you think?

This book is a breezy account of political (in)correctness, necessarily so since it covers Western civilization from the time of the Greeks to the current day in 310 pages. It is interesting reading in that the opinions expressed are so very contrary to many of today's accepted interpretations of history and philosophy, which are often shaped by politically correct ideas of right and wrong, acceptable and unacceptable to the postmodern mind. Esolen is obviously well-read and can articulate the positive and negative things we have received from the Greeks, Romans, the Judeo-Christian tradition, the High Middle Ages, and even today. He does believe that there is Truth and isn't hesitant to say that, and why he believes it.

The call-outs are helpful in helping to focus on particular issues and books that "you're not supposed to read." The footnotes give further leads for additional reading. Even if you don't agree with Esolen's conclusions, hopefully you have been forced to consider why that is. I sense, however, that most people will not have much of an idea of what he is writing about since people study history, philosophy and theology so little today. Hopefully the book will encourage people to take up and read more on these topics, especially the original works.

This book is likely to be for most people a beginning primer that will encourage further reading and reflection.

My 13 year old is reading it now. This book is a bit cheeky and repetitive at times, but the historical details are great. Contrasting it with what kids are currently being taught in middle school textbooks is both illuminating and disturbing. Knowledge over ideology, parents!

really appreciate this book, I had hoped to have the Middle School boys (homeschooled) work with it, but it needs a little censoring for that age, so I read and they listen. not a bad deal because I can omit some examples or comments that are beyond their current exposure and the gist is still there. Will be ok for them in a couple years. Professor Esolen knows what he's talking about and this is a great resource.

This author never ceases to amaze me. Amazing wisdom with a touch of humor, and fills some little holes of MY education. Sometimes i have to read a paragraph several times to catch the gist.....and I don't always agree.....but he does challenge my brain to THINK. And that is never a bad thing; a lot of us could use the practice.

Currently still reading but I like that it brings the history forward in a precise matter so we can see the whole picture

Great factual and entertaining reading
A welcome break from the revisionist history that we have been subjected to for so many years.
