    Unlike many of the other reviewers here, I have actually listened to the podcast I ve been a fan of Hardcore History and Dan Carlin s unique and chatty approach to the subject for years I ve noticed that every chapter in this book is essentially a reworked past episode of the podcast I m not complaining Stringing them together into a book with a common theme is brilliant A number of the other episodes that weren t covered in this book, the epically long ones, would also make great books.It Unlike many of the other ...

    I have never listened to the podcast that this book is based on, but found it incredibly thought provoking At it s heart it s a philosophical take on history looking at how famine, plague, war and other calamities come about, what there effects were and then asking the question of could they happen again Is our civilisation genuinely different from the Assyrians or Romans who didn t think that their empires could fall either In a weird way, I think this book is akin to Sapiens A Brief I have never listened to the podcast that this book is based on, but found it incredibly thought provoking At it s heart it s a philosophical take on history looking at how famine, plague, war and other calamities come about, what there effects were and then asking the questio...

    I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review Based on a podcast, this is an interesting jump into the world of history, but not quite as we known it Dan Carlin examines some of the disasters of our history to determine their likelihood of ever happening again, as well as how they occurred in the first place It s grand scale history, sweeping us through the ages and inviting the reader to think about the what ifs and near misses of our pasts At times I found the subject I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review Based on a podcast, this is an interesting jump into the world of history, but not quite as we known it Dan Carlin examines some of the disasters of our history to determine their likelihood of ever happening again, as well as how they occurred in the first place It s grand scale history, sweeping us through the ages and inviting the reader to think about the what ifs and near misses of our pasts At times I found the subject matter a little dry and hea...

    I understand that some of the book s content has appeared in Dan s Hardcore History podcasts, but since I ve only listened to a sparse few a lot of the book was relatively new material to me I thought the premise of the book was excellent Things look quite good right now and it s hard to imagine civilization regressing substantially, but history is filled with examples of exactly that over and over again Just how optimistic should we be today that we can avert the same fate I expect that Dan I understand that some of the book s content has appeared in Dan s Hardcore History podcasts, but since I ve only listened to a sparse few a lot of the book was relatively new material to me I thought the premise of the book was excellent Th...

    The principal question for the modern age is this Has humanity made moral progress, or are we destined to repeat the same mistakes and suffer the same misfortunes Dan Carlin, founder of the popular podcast Hardcore History, explores this question as he recounts the apocalyptic moments of our past while asking if the modern world is destined to face similar catastrophes, and if so, whether or not we have the resolve to handle them.Carlin covers the Bronze Age collapse, the fall of the Assyrian The principal question for the modern age is this Has humanity made moral progress, or are we destined to repeat the same mistakes and suffer t...

    This is parsing past history within setting generalization posits I was super disappointed Portions I skim read I love history and got something very unlike what the title surmised to my meeting it or in anticipation.It s not super bad quality for most readers No But for me or any true students who hold depth homo sapiens historic study within their backgro...

    Well that was underwhelming If you have listened to his podcasts prepare to hear everything you ve already heard before Dan doesn t try at all to come up with any new stories, questions, or ways of explaining the same stories from history Hint Planet of the Apes reference Incoming This book does not cover new territory but feels like he just looked through his old research notes and put them all together but I believe the book should be rated aside from connection to his podcast I was Well...

  8. Charlie says:

    The themes of this book will be familiar to listeners of the Hardcore History podcast, as Dan Carlin has touched on them before, particularly in the early episodes before the podcast became super long Here, those themes are fleshed out indetail The book maintains the same engagin...

    The beginning of the book was a little offputting with a discussion on civilization s softness which at times sounded like a rant of your reactionary uncle but the book gets much better andinteresting from there It is largely about the four horsemen who cause what seems like apocalyptic changes in history Discussing the Bronze age collapse of eastern Mediterranean civilizations in the twelfth century BCE or the fall of Rome, or Justinian s or the Black Plagues and the Spanish flu of The beginning of the book was a little offputting with a discussion on civilization s softness which at times sou...

  10. Joe Thomas says:

    The End Is Always Near a rather pessimistic, but oddly fitting, title for a book about some of the key moments in human history I confess never having listened to Dan s podcast, but the concept here grabbed me straight away an exploration of some the most catastrophic or near catastrophic moments in human history, from the fall of the Roman Empire to ...
