Excellent narration and a fine story combined to provide a great listening experience. The story captivated me while listening and made me look forward to my next quiet moment. It was a great way to learn a bit about our history while being treated to an entertaining experience.
I have not read the print version.
Overall the book was very informative about the transformative gyrations in the lands and peoples of the region. It was good to learn a bit about the nature and mindset of the peoples of the region and how they impact the world at large. I have come to the belief, however, that the authors seem somewhat biased in favor of Muslims. Atrocities conducted by Muslims were largely glossed over or presented as a matter of course, whereas atrocities perpetrated by non-Muslim peoples were presented as gross failures of culture, morality, and ideology; especially anything Isreali in nature.
This book was as enjoyable as the other books I have listened to so far.
This book was well written and narrated. It was a pleasure to listen to as I learned a bit of American history that was previously unaware of.
To date, The Dead Hand was the most enthralling audiobook I have enjoyed.
I liked learning the details about the news snippets I heard in the eighties and nineties.
Mr. Walter has a clear and captivating narration style that holds one's attention rather firmly, leaving little opportunity for the mind to wander.
Oh, how close to the cliff!
A worthwhile information and entertainment investment.
