    1. History in it s proper context is always relative to current times and is the best antidote to the stupidity in which I routinely see happening around especially during the political season.This lecture starts the Renaissance with Florence and even will tell you practically the day that the Renaissance started In 1382, Florence was in the process of losing a war with one of their weaker neighbors and the General leading the assault against Florence died and thereby saved Florence from defeat.The [...]

    2. It s a long audio book but the lectures in it are interesting and cover a lot of topics I do wish the lecturer spent time about the Art of the Renaissance as that was the main reason I wanted to listen to it in the first place Unfortunately the Art section only received one whole lecture and then related details were sprinkled throughout a few other lectures If you re checking this out for the Art, know that he talks about Art for less than 5% of the audio book.This is a petty detail but I wasn [...]

    3. I ve read other books on the period and wasn t sure what to expect the additive value to be of this book but was pleased to obtain an excellent understanding off the period personalized to conditions within each if the EU counties involved I learned things about the cultures if these regions that is never known I d definitely recommend this to those interests in the period.

    4. This is the course book accompanying the Teaching Company course of the same name I found the book the outline and glossary etc OK the course was for me a video course as I wanted to allow the teacher to use visual illustrations and maps to better convey the content of the course and that seemed to get better as the course went on but overall that was a really lost opportunity in this situation this is a review of the course than the book I guess this is the only course he did for them so maybe [...]

    5. Absolutely atrocious If you bought it for its advertised excellence, demand your money back I am not knowledgeable on the whole period, I have a very good acquaintance with most of it He is just plain wrong on so many issues I am not talking about the odd date or fact that he has misspoken, I am talking about him totally misunderstanding historical situations and relationships He just makes himself look foolish I don t know how they dare sell it.

    6. Very informative, easy to understand and follow the various strands of history that weave together to result in the renaissance and reformation.

    7. Monster of a listen, but extremely interesting tying these periods together in European history The delivery can be tough at times, but I learned to like his lecturing.

    8. Have been skipping around a good bit in this, haven t gone through the entire set good info but not as interesting or as well done as the The Long Nineteenth Century set.

    9. informative and easy to read, indeed Little in depth analysis, but with the sheer amount of data, no wonder I felt it failed to tie a few knots, but overall a good read.

    10. Mostly good However, I feel as though it didn t talk about the ramifications of the age of discovery and increased literacy as underlying forces of change in this era.
