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!
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.
