This is the first audible.com book I have downloaded and listened to. I am now an addicted audiophile to this type of media. Charlie Wilson's War was a wonderful book that detailed the behind the scenes machinations of the Afghan War.
This book bolsters the notion that what goes on behind the news headlines is far more interesting and eye opening than that which is actually fed to the public. Charlie Wilson is a character who seems to believe that some laws are made to be broken if it will lead to a greater good if the ends justifies the means. In this case, victory for the Afghan rebel fighters and the eventual collapse of the Soviet Empire.
I cannot recommend this book more highly if your looking for story that will keep you riveted to each upcoming chapter and the workings thru the CIA and of a Congressman whom was virtually unknown to the American public.
