This audio book has a few moments of good laughs and funny anecdotes but simple stated this book is not as good as his other works. If you are looking for something like “A walk in the Woods” or “In a Sunburned Country” this is not it.
Seabiscuit - you could sense his own intensity and desire to win.
Could not turn it off
This is a great story much like Silent Running. Silent Running is a more personal account of the war in the Pacific and this talks more about the war and command.
I never listened to any of Mr Bryson's bookd before. I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It provided a wonderful escape, through imagery, humor and vivid descriptions. I highly encourage anyone to get this book for a fun, light and relaxing escape from life's daily grind.
I realy enjoy this period of our history and I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I even had to go to Quincy, Ma just to see his house and see where he lived, worked and wrote many letters and perfomed many of his duties. I was even more amazed at what an incredible woman Abigail Adams was, I would like to see David McCullough write a book about her.
