The book is written simply and is not bad overall. The reading, however, is horrible. While mispronunciation of Wisconsin towns can be forgiven, the reader should have at least taken the time to find out how to pronounce some of the key individuals in the book. The reading of each letter in HUAC even after it is identified as an acronym is simply ignorance of both the definition of the word "acronym" and American history. There are many other examples of a near complete lack of preparation to read the book. I've never written a review for Audible before, but I just couldn't stop myself in this case. The author and publisher should be horrified by the reading of this book.
The content was good, but the reading made listening to this audiobook painful
The first hand accounts of extremists
His accent was strange and his reading was stiff. The pronounciations were bizarre. Antisemite was pronounced Anti sea mite, which I have never heard before. When someone who the author was interviewing laughed, the author made a weird "ha ha" sound. It was like fingernails down a chalkboard. Producers should really dissuade authors from reading their own books.
The content is really good, but I almost stopped listening to it.
