Description

A New York Times pick for "Best Audiobooks for Road Trips with Kids"

Exclusively on Audible, hilarious history for ages eight and up.

Fasten your falx knives and grab the reins of your quadriga: Rivals 2! More Frenemies Who Changed the World is the funniest look at people who benefited the world through their hatred.

Hear how the rivalry between Edison and Tesla literally changed the course of electricity, how sports fans nearly toppled the Roman Empire, how geniuses Chanel and Schiaparelli empowered women worldwide and had the greatest rivalry that wasn’t, and how the feud between Joe Frazier and Muhammad Ali was so intense more people tuned in to their fight than watched Neil Armstrong set foot on the moon two years earlier.

This audiobook has it all: death beams, chariot races, flaming costumes, ear-munchers, party fleas, and whatever the opposite of epic poetry is.... No fact is too bizarre, no segue too surreal, and no sequitur is too non for this riotous sequel.

All Hail Booger Face

after the first audio book, I quickly preordered the second. I chuckled out loud just the same with the sound effects and all. looking forward to the third and again wished it was longer.

very funny, very interesting.

Great Job all around Mr. McCormick. This was every bit as good as part 1. I learned a lot and was laughing the whole way. Kudos to the cast too.

A fun jaunt through conflicts in history

I only wish Scott would make all of history so much fun. Though there are lots of conflicts that moved the saga of civilization along so he might keep trying.

Fabulous Frenemies!

Similar to the 1st Rivals, I truly enjoyed this offering. I would recommend to anyone interested in unique historical reference presented in a humorous, entertaining fashion.

Please keep ‘em coming!

Simply Amazing! Great for kids!

I love these books! The author does a great job in pulling you into the lives if the people he writes about. His story telling makes you want to learn more about each individual; and the fact he leaves a suggested bibliography makes it all the more easier to do so.

Must hear information

I loved every part of this audible book. it grabs your attention, communicates the history and research with a not so subtle hilarity that allows you to enjoy history. That is something I wish I had in my own classes. The narrator was excellent as well.

For the Patriarchy!

At first, I thought I prefer the voice of Prentice Onayemi(Narrator for Book 1) more instead of Bill Andrew Quinn for the narration and will be left disappointed, but after fully listening to it I was hooked just like the first book in the series! A job well done to all the cast and hoping for a part 3!! Funny, entertaining and educational. A good listen to all ages!!
