This audiobook rocks. I say "audiobook" and not "book" because not only is the content great, it actually SOUNDS good. If you are familiar to audiobooks, you realize some are tragically awful sounding. This audiobook features interludes of sea voyage inspired music and humorous yet realistic renditions of the Puritan letters, etc. Makes it almost fun to be stuck in traffic.
That being said, the true value of this book is the witty humor of Sarah Vowell, the mix of pure intelligence with pop culture references, and the thorough research and obvious passion with which it was clearly created. SV's findings are important in the context of our current culture and world issues and should be an urgent call to seriously (and humorously) consider our actions based on the Puritan culture and what we've learned (or haven't learned) about it. Thank you Sarah!
