This book is so well done. The narrator was fantastic and his performance was phenomenal. I love a good story, and this story is great. The drama is brought to life with great detail. You love characters and hate others. For anyone who is a fan of history and the talented Romans who built it, this is a must read.
This book is a great overview of the Crusades and their historical significance. By its own admission it is not extremely in depth which I think is helpful, it gives you an overview of the story. Some specific instances of battles and their consequences. It doesn't get bogged down in any minutia that some historians feel the need to do.
I was very glad the book went into the the role the Mongols played in the Crusades whom I have studied quite a bit.
The narrator did an excellent job and really kept the flow of the book going well. If you are like me and listen on the iOS Audible app at 2x or 3x speeds, Claton Butcher's voice easily handles the speed increase without sounding clipped.
Enjoy this book.
This is an interesting take of Ghengis Khan and his descendants. The author doesn't focus on the barbarian aspect of it, and seems to tone down the violence and slaughter that the Mongels are known for. I don't know that I fully believe it, but it was interesting and well done none-the-less.
I'd recommend it to anyone who wants to read a take on the greatest conqueror in world history.
Gaffigan is hilarious. He delivers this book so well, and keeps you laughing for 5 hours straight.
This book takes you (hilariously) through the thoughts of being a single guy, to the lifestyle of a father of toddlers. I couldn't stop laughing, and thinking throughout the book. Highly recommend.
This book was intriguing, fascinating, convicting, and sobering. I was expecting a book tht was glorify heroic battles, but it wasn't why I got. Instead I received a fascinating journey through the killing process and how modern military training makes today's armies of infantry much more deadly than their predecessors.
It also is a cautionary tale for parents, politicians, and media types who cause their positions to protect our children from violence towards their fellow man, and urges us as a nation to re-sensitize ourselves and our children.
I highly, highly recommend and encourage you to listen to this book read by the author himself.
I would absolutely recommend this book to a friend. And I have. It is entertaining, and inspiring. Giving practical steps to get on towards awesome in your life. It is a good listen, and can help people who are looking for "what they are supposed to do with their life or career".
Get inspired. Get practical. Get started.
