Fast moving biography of a guy that was one of the greatest US commanders fighting the British, before he made a really stupid decision. Lot's of interesting detail about Arnold's family, early years, path to glory, path to ruin and final years.
Phineas Gage was a famous "medical figure" in the mid-19th century who played a role in the discovery of the makeup of the brain. This compact retelling of his history is a nice relief from the heavier & longer history books, and novels, I am accustomed to downloading. It is well told and well narrated, and it just the thing to whet your pallet for the next big book.
