Everybody gets so much information all day long that they lose their common sense.
Gertrude Stein

The world's a complex and bewildering place. Every day we are bombarded with far more information than we can possibly hope to absorb. We don't have the time, energy, or patience to process it all and select what's important, and sometimes it's tempting to drop the news section straight in the bin and curl up on the sofa with the colour supplements instead.

But there are a lot of things happening in the world that we simply can't afford to ignore.

What on Earth Is Going On? fills in the background to the key issues of our times - from climate change to the credit crunch, Darfur to devolution - taking the form of an alphabetical glossary that can be consulted at convenient moments. This is an audiobook for listening in bed, on the morning commute, or in the downstairs loo.

A rich hotchpotch of world events, current affairs, historical background, and amusing trivia, it is a gentle survival guide for people of all ages who wish they knew a little bit more about what on earth is going on. Download and start listening now!

    " I loved the "for dummies" approach of this book. It gives you enough info to at least know what people are talking about when in polite conversation! "

    " And succinct book with current global information. A summary format but organized by issue based. Recommended for college and university students who wish to understand the facets of global issues. Also for teachers for effective background info. "
