    In a world in which news and information flashes around the globe in an instant, time lags are inconceivable. But they were a fact of life in the 19th century. One of those adept, impressively learned, sometimes impractical 19-century woodshed thinkers and tinkers, Cyrus Field, knew only a little of the hard science behind stringing a submarine telegraph cable that would link the financial markets of London and New York.

    Overall

    on the surface you might question how such an event could be converted into an audiobook in an attempt to captivate the listener. On all fronts this book was very well executed, the narrator puts enough inflection and pace to maintain the listeners interest throughout. From the daring concept of the project through the main protagonists and on to the many testing circumstances there are no flat periods in this book at all.
    I would heartily recommend this audiobook
