A phenomenal survey course, well crafted and delivered. You must listen to Sheehan if you want to understand why the world is as it is today.

A worthwhile lecture

I recently starting a long drive to work and would look forward to my drive so that i can listen to the lecture. A great refresher, well presented, and a knowledgeable lecturer. Thank you for this series. Really enjoyed it and would recommend it to anyone wanting a refresher on world history.

Speed it up

Great lecture series, worth each minute. I recommend using the iPhone app and increasing the speed up to 1 1/2. I'm just delighted that this is available online, i'll be sharing it with my friends.
