Summary

'In a Nutshell', the new audiobook series from Naxos AudioBooks, continues with a fascinating history of Afghanistan.
For centuries it has been the playground of big powers, from Alexander the Great to the British Empire and the Soviet Union. It has been torn by internal strife and ideological differences, yet Afghans, tribal though they may be, remain a proud nation. Here is a short history, setting the background to the current situation.
PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio.

A useful "Nutshell"

For the great many who don't know anything more about Afghanistan than the headlines, this is a useful background piece…. with it you'll quickly know more than 90% of the population.

Like reading the phonebook

Is there anything you would change about this book?

This is almost a reference guide, not really a 'reading book' and much less a listening experience. Too much information crammed in there.

What was most disappointing about Timothy Albone and Mark Hudson ’s story?

Information overload. Both me and my wife have tried listening to this several times, but it's too hard to follow.

Did the narration match the pace of the story?

Narrator was actually pretty good.
