    This great time capsule of a book captures the abundant popular history of the United States from 1932 to 1972. It encompasses politics, military history, economics, the lively arts, science, fashion, fads, social change, sexual mores, communications, graffiti...everything and anything indigenous that can be captured in print.

    Paula says: "Fabulous book, good narration, bad recording"
    "Most important books on US from 1937-1972"

    Story
    Would you listen to The Glory and the Dream again? Why?

    Matybe. It is very very long -- over 40 hours. I listen as I get up in the morning, drive to work and come back. Wonderful experience.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Glory and the Dream?

    Too many to review: It's history. Lots and lots of critically important information and dates.


    Have you listened to any of Jeff Riggenbach’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    He's amazing.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Lots. Again, in the history of 40 or so years, it's a wonderful story.


    Any additional comments?

    Everyone should listen. It's wonderfully written -- full of color and lively. Well recorded. Transfixing.
