I will purchase the book. The language is difficult which complicates concentration and comprehension throughout.
This book was addictive: it kept me tuned in through to the end.
Having been there for a week-long visit to help with animal agriculture, I found myself back in Pristina while listening the description: the smell, the colors, the dust...
The fact that the author himself, he who lived the experience, reads the book putting the tones where he meant them to be, makes it fascinating to listen.
I wish I had listened to this book before I visited Kosovo. Even though more than 10 years have past after Mr. Kearney experiences, and even many more from the actual events that occurred during the secession war, I think it would have been illuminating to take his accounts into consideration. It would have been extremely helpful to understand the culture and thought processes of Kosovans!
This program is interesting and the content is reasonably comprehensive, although because of its breadth, details were only briefly presented, which in turn, leads me to the next aspect: books to compare.
Rather than compare, I would suggest people listen to the "Last Days of the Incas", before taking this lecture. That book is more paced and the author takes its time describing details more thoroughly. It will help with understanding Professor's D'Altroy's lecture.
