    When James Bond is asked to settle a dispute over "ungentlemanly behavior" at an exclusive gambling club, the affair is embarrassing in the extreme, for the accused is the unimpeachable Sir Hugo Drax: business tycoon, popular hero, patriot extraordinaire, and head of the multimillion-dollar Moonraker missile program on which Britain's future defense depends.

    Written as a post-war, pre-space age tale of building an intercontinental missile that would bring peace to the world, I enjoyed the plot and Fleming's actual words so much more than the 1980's movie of the same name (and little else save the villain's name).
    The writing is crisp and descriptive, keeps the listener transported and engaged, and Simon Vance does his usual superb job of bringing the characters to life. I'm looking forward to listening to the rest of the James Bond books.

  • A History of the World in 6 Glasses

    Throughout human history, certain drinks have done much more than just quench thirst. As Tom Standage relates with authority and charm, six of them have had a surprisingly pervasive influence on the course of history, becoming the defining drink during a pivotal historical period. A History of the World in 6 Glasses tells the story of humanity from the Stone Age to the 21st century through the lens of beer, wine, spirits, coffee, tea, and cola.

    Would you consider the audio edition of A History of the World in 6 Glasses to be better than the print version?

    The story telling is wonderful, and I wish I could see maps of the locations throughout the world as they were told.


    Any additional comments?

    A great angle on human history, that these six drinks helped form, direct, and react to civilization and major events. Just fascinating.
