I really enjoyed this book. I try to be a peaceful positive parent, and I can't believe I hadn't read this earlier. Along with Peaceful Parents Happy child and How to talk so kids would listen, this book is a great tool for parents who want a respectful and positive relationship with their kids. This is more about toddlers, though, so if your kids are older, maybe pick either book of the two I just referenced. It's an easy short read, structured in a Q&A format that is easy to follow. Totally recommended.

Delightful

I really enjoyed this book. It's not a light listen by any means but it's both interesting and informative. The author basically takes you from the big bang to the end of humanity, cruising through biology, history, zoology, sociology, economics, and politics in a way that doesn't get boring or dull. His language is engaging and makes everything interesting and the narrator did a very good job of telling the stories, taking it slow when he needs to and pausing for effect when appropriate.

Great book!

Made me laugh, made me cry, made me feel things, made me relate, and inspired me, I really enjoyed it from beginning to end.

Except for the last two chapters, I didn't like it

If you get bored easy, just don't read this. I really wanted to like this book. I was a babywise mom when my twins were younger, so I thought, take it from there, right? Wrong! First off, the narrator was kind of robotic. A lot of it is just things you should already know... there was also a chapter that was very out of touch and just rubbed me the wrong way. Assuming everyone has a huge house with slides and swings in the backyard, and the mom spending her whole day at home, and can afford help... really?
The only two chapters I liked were the last two.

The book is great. The narration; not so much!

The book is great. The narration; not so much! The information is really helpful, though.

I loved this and it had me listening non-stop. I enjoyed the whole journey, the jump cuts, the narration. I did think the discovery was kind of underwhelming, and not as earth-shattering as it was hyped up to be, and I have to admit that I could predict most of the plot twists, not all, which is ok I guess. Still, I really enjoyed it.

Enjoyed every bit of it

The books are great and really capturing, and are rendered even more magical with the help of Stephen Fry's narration. All of these stories and novels for just one credit, such a good deal.
