Would you consider the audio edition of Living the French Revolution and the Age of Napoleon to be better than the print version?
Lectures always work best in their original format. However, I feel that the lack of visual images did not bother me at all - the descriptions were vivid and clear.
What was one of the most memorable moments of Living the French Revolution and the Age of Napoleon?
I was particularly fond of the stories of 'little' individuals, especially those not often mentioned in the context of the topic.
What does Professor Suzanne M. Desan bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?
Enthusiasm, passion for history, sense of humour.
Any additional comments?
I was left hungry for more. Unfortunately, another Great Courses lecture series I tried just did not compare to this one. I wish Professor Desan would expand on another topic in a similar way.

Whilst the course is about the French Revolution and the Age of Napoleon, it's primary focus is on the French Revolution. That being said, whilst I'm a fan of Napoleon, this is a bit more hostile towards Napoleon than Napoleon podcast by J David Markham and Cameron Reilly, it's more friendly towards the Revolutionaries.
Overall, this is a great overview of the French Revolution.

This course combines big historic events and trends during the era of the French Revolution and through Napoleon's reign with the everyday lives of the people who lived during that time. We need more history courses like this.
