Fascinating moments interspersed with mind-numbing detail. Much of the descriptive detail would have been more interesting with images.
Really enjoyed the content, but had to speed the pace. Seemed this one dragged a bit. Learned a lot... Good if you wanted to learn more about a bridge and an engineer who both have an interesting story.
A great history that all Americans should know. The Roeblings set what ethical businesses should look like....today we try to reinvent the wheel, but all we have to do is to look at this example.
Loved this book with all of the politics and machinations of 19th century New York City and the rest of the country.
This was a great story of how one America's great wonders was built. David McCullough has a way of making history very intersesting. I have never listened to or read any of his books but now I look forward to listening to all his books.
