This is my third book that I have read by David McCullough. The other two being the Wright Brothers and Johnstown Flood. All three of these books have been great. This one in particular has very interesting. Teaching not only about the Brooklyn Bridge but also about things going on around that time. Highly recommended book. David McCullough is quickly becoming my favorite author.
Well researched and read. I have learned and was entertained. If you like history and industry listen this book is perfect
it's amazing that a book about the building of a bridge can be totally engaging and fun. This one is all that and more. A wonderful history of the time and politics in New York along with the story of an engineering marvel.
Our high schoolers should be required to read this book. Everything great and bad about this country. Very well written.
every time I see the bridge I am so grateful for this book. the rich history, science, scandal, sacrifice, loyalties and betrayals are brought to life by the author and narrator.
Inventor with successful invention. Listen to my books while at the gym. Good for my brain!
From a score of 1 - 10 I would give this a 2
Don't know the name.
No. I listen while walking on the treadmill at the gym.
Not at this time!
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.
