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.
