    Emerson's ideas are alive and well and very much with us today. Consider that Emerson, now an establishment figure, was a rebel in his time. He could find no relevance in established religion. But, unlike others, he set out to reform it. Many of his ideas now seem obvious and as American as apple pie.

    Story

    Emerson could be the great American thinker. His writings are exciting and inspiring. I can't wait to either read them or discuss them in a different context.

    This is because the narrator of this sounds like a robot with accent set on New England. The flat reading is distracting and ultimately dulling. I see Mr. Killavey has done several audiobooks so maybe his reading is better on others, but it really kills the material here.

    I love Ross Thomas stories and this one is a good one. Robert Culp has the perfect wry voice for narrating this. I wish he had done more books before he had gone. RIP.
