    Story
    (313)

    Nearly 40 years ago, a New York State Library archivist discovered 12,000 pages of extraordinary records from the original Dutch colony on Manhattan. After decades of painstaking translation, the documents became the primary source for this breathtaking history of early New York.

    Pen Name says: "Loved it!"
    "Interesting Dutch History of NYC"
    Overall

    The book really gives you insight into the Dutch development of NYC during the 17th century. Very interesting character development and reads quickly.

    Winston Churchill's speeches during World War II were the backbone of a ravaged Britain, and gave hope and direction to the Allied effort in Europe. Here, in his own unmistakable voice, and those of stage luminaries Sir Laurence Olivier and Sir John Gielgud, are selections from his most famous and inspiring speeches. If you like this, you'll like The Greatest Speeches of All Time.

    Bradley says: "GOOD LISTEN, DISAPOINTING EDITING"
    "Timeless Inspiration"
    Overall

    I have listened to this several times and am still amazed at how Churchill motivated his country and the world. He did not use complex words. As he mentions at the beginning "he mastered the structure of the basic English sentence". Very inspiring to know that in such dark times as WWII, something as basic as the spoken word successfully rallied the forces of good on to victory.
