    On the afternoon of 8 April 1802, in the remote southern ocean, two explorers had a remarkable chance encounter. Englishman Matthew Flinders and Frenchman Nicolas Baudin had been sent by their governments on the same quest: to explore the uncharted coast of the great south land and find out whether the west and east coasts, four thousand kilometres apart, were part of the same island. And so began the race to compile the definitive map of Australia.

    I love history and this was a story I knew nothing about. I thought that the narrator was excellent and the story very interesting and compelling. I highly recommend this book for anyone who love exploration and discovery.

    James A. Garfield may have been the most extraordinary man ever elected president. Born into abject poverty, he rose to become a wunderkind scholar, a Civil War hero, and a renowned and admired reformist congressman. Nominated for president against his will, he engaged in a fierce battle with the corrupt political establishment. But four months after his inauguration, a deranged office seeker tracked Garfield down and shot him in the back. But the shot didn’t kill Garfield. The drama of what hap­pened subsequently is a powerful story of a nation in tur­moil.

    Story
    If you could sum up Destiny of the Republic in three words, what would they be?

    This was a great story with an equally great narrator. I love learning new things and this book was full on new information. Five different stories (the President, the Assassin, Medical Advances, Alexander Graham Bell, and the Political Boss) were mixed together and the final product was tasted. I recommend this book if you love history.
