    The Greater Journey is the enthralling, inspiring—and until now, untold—story of the adventurous American artists, writers, doctors, politicians, architects, and others of high aspiration who set off for Paris in the years between 1830 and 1900, ambitious to excel in their work.

    John says: "Priceless! Best book I've read in years"
    "McCullough is great, as always"
    Overall

    I only got this book because of the author, and he did not fail to deliver. An excellent read that depicts the a fascinating array of subjects not covered in your typical histories. Another wonderful work by America's greatest living historian.

  • And the Band Played On: Politics, People, and the AIDS Epidemic

    Upon its first publication 20 years ago, And The Band Played On was quickly recognized as a masterpiece of investigatve reporting. An international best seller, a nominee for the National Book Critics Circle Award, and made into a critically acclaimed movie, Shilts' expose revealed why AIDS was allowed to spread unchecked during the early 80s while the most trusted institutions ignored or denied the threat.

    sarah says: "Excellent Journalism"
    "One of the best"
    Overall

    This is one of the best works of social commentary of the 20th century. What "the jungle" did for the meat packing industry, this book should have done for epidemiology. The audiobook flows nicely, bringing Shilts' prose to life. A must read!
