    Award-winning author William Rosen tells the story of the men responsible for the Industrial Revolution and the machine that drove it: the steam engine.

    "Will be getting the book"
    Overall

    My low rating has only to do with the reader, Michael Prichard. The info he presents is fine, but his delivery is brutally slow, monotone and not unlike a bad history professor. I love history, especially technical history and the impact it has on the world, but even with my iPod pushing the text along at "faster" mode, I couldn't handle it. I hate giving up on books because it makes me feel like a failure, but I just couldn't handle the reading.

    From an info standpoint, the book is a four-star piece. But the reading is brutal. I thought after listening to the preview I could get through it. But he broke me early on. I just wanted to let people know before they purchased the book here.
