Books: “The End Is Always Near” by Dan Carlin

DanCarlin_TheEndIsAlwaysNeaMy son Taylor is a history buff and turned me on to Dan Carlin’s Hardcore History podcasts. I particularly enjoyed Carlin’s long running Supernova in the East series and commented a couple times previously as it corresponded with quite a few books that I’ve read (and am still reading) detailing World War II and the build-up and war with Japan in the Pacific.

DanCarlinHarpersLast week I picked up Dan Carlin’s 2020 book, “The End Is Always Near: Humanity vs the Apocalypse, From the Bronze Age to Today” and immediately started reading. Because I’m in the middle of a couple other books, I’m not sure when I’ll get to it, but I might look for the audio version since I do enjoy listening to the author’s delivery (he reads it). After enjoying the foreword and moving on to the first chapter though, I’m pretty much hooked, so may keep going?

If you enjoyed Dan Carlin and “his” take on history, you should check it out.
