    Overall

    Many thanks for making these speeches available, both the original broadcasts and the few not recorded at the time. I thought the St George and the Dragon speech especially hit the right balance of subtle mockery without overpowering the overall upright and serious tone. Listen for yourself and discover why president JFK and so many others value Sir Winston Churchill so much. A pity we have so few remaining schools and institutions still capable of producing such sense and character society will always and desperately need.

    Winston Churchill steered Britain through its darkest hours during World War II. He was one of the 20th century's greatest orators, and the speeches that he painstakingly composed, rehearsed, and delivered inspired courage in an entire nation. Churchill's output was prolific; his complete speeches alone contain over 5 million words.

    "Excellent encapsulation of NYT"

    Overall

    While I used to subscribe to the New York Times, it cost a lot and I seldom had the time to read much of it anyway. The Audible.com version is just what the doctor ordered: the headline stories in each important section are read, and that's the important stuff. If you're a news junkie like me, you will want to go online for the full stories and other features, and supplement your news with the usual sources. I personally couldn't care less about the sports news, but I just click to the next section to bypass that portion. The narration is just right -- crisp and clean, not too slow, and with a basic introduction to each news story. Highly recommended, and one of the main reasons I subscribed to Audible.

    In addition to the usual interesting and gossipy stories, the narration is fun, too, with different narrators for each article. So glad they offer it on audible!
