Excellent information given in simple terms and illustrations (actors)
16 May 2017 | by pawsonly-41245See all my reviews

For all you detractors of this series, I think your missing the point. There are probably thousands of us who had no idea of what our actual history is. So you don't like the presenter and there were probably some inventions that weren't included, but there was plenty of information for those of us who didn't know. I'm a senior with just a high school education and this series, including Jason Silva, kept me watching and even his repeated things made me listen more closely. It seems to me that even a simple person would learn from this series. Very educational.
