- The Relentless Rise of the East India Company
- Written by: William Dalrymple
- Narrated by: Sid Sagar
- Length: 15 hrs and 43 mins
The Anarchy tells the remarkable story of how one of the world’s most magnificent empires disintegrated and came to be replaced by a dangerously unregulated private company, based thousands of miles overseas in one small office, five windows wide, and answerable only to its distant shareholders. In his most ambitious and riveting audiobook to date, William Dalrymple tells the story of the East India Company as it has never been told before, unfolding a timely cautionary tale of the first global corporate power.

I guess there is some irony in an English performer of Indian descent being incapable of pronouncing Indian words and names in an otherwise good oration of the rise of the British in India. Rich with detail, and fascinating source material - the book is what I hoped it would be. Dalrymple's writing is excellent. His source material is fascinating. His articulation of the history is well crafted. Sid Sagar did a decent job - except when it came to actually pronouncing names terms and words of the subcontinent of his ancestors.

What is the chapter about again?

pseudo-science, opinion and lobsters
Peterson's narration is passionate and probably the only redeeming quality of this experience. The content is largely ridiculous pseudo-scientific and superficial.
