The truth without the usual political snow job.
I enjoyed every minute of the audio book.
A struggle for honest government.
Neil Barofsky is an American hero. Neil hired extraordinary people to assist him with an impossible job. There is no happy ever after here but Neil Barofsky gave the treasury department, and the banks, nightmares for their blatant incompetence, malfeasance and fraud.
Anyone would enjoy this if the reader had at least paused a bit between sentences. The guy sounds like a computer.
Of course... I do love Louis L'Amour's writings but hate it when some hack destroys the flavor of a manuscript.
Pausing between sentences would be first. Adding some verbal feeling to the storyline would have made this a good audio book.
Anger! This would have been enjoyable but the reader sabatoged the feeling of the story. What a waste!
Don't wast your money on this. Sounds like a computer read the book! With a different reader, I would buy again.
I am listening to this audio book again... This is a story for thinkers; those who prefer the solitude of a good story.
Johannes Verne is my favorite character. At the age of six, Johannes Verne, took the hard lessons of life as nourishment for his soul. Despite the dark and dangerous times of his early youth, Johannes Verne grew to become a good man. A man of courage.
David Strathairn gave the story feeling. His style, as a reader made the story live.
No... The book is many hours.
Great book, written by a legend, read by a man who gave the story character.
The book could have been half as long if the storyline did not present a mini biography on everyone before Oppenheimer's birth and everyone during Oppenheimer's life who may have come in contact with Oppenheimer.
This book should have stuck to the subject.
No.... Why beat a dead horse?
This was a waste of time. I kept waiting for the storyline to get back to the subject but when it did return it would quickly veer off to focus on some other character who MAY have influenced Oppenheimer's life.
The story line on focuses on relativity and stays on target throughout the book.
The book ends with a clear case of how and why relativity is still with us and will remain with us.
The summation on relativity at the end of the book.
The who book excited me
A great work!
Throw out the parts on reincarnation and channeling and I would have enjoyed the book.
"A good "performance"
There is a trace of wisdom here but the author could have done as well if the book had been a testimony on an anien abduction.
I can only hope his other books get back to reality.
The narration sounded like Jack Web on the old time Dragnet series. What a wast of a good manuscript.
No way but I will watch out for the narration.
I'd rather visit the dentist than listen to that monotone grating.
Disappointment? I wasted my time and money to listen to a guy sabotage what could have been a great audiobook.
Comments? I'd rather not prolong the disgusting experience.
Yes, I will listen to this again. Perhaps I am not the average person, but I love this kind of learning, and this truly is a learning experience to be savored.
Caleb did a wonderful job. I'd be proud if he was to do this kind of work for my books.
The ending was emotionally moving. One can feel the connection with the grand scheme of creation.
Fast moving. Should have slowed a bit to allow consideration of the message.
The book seemed to concentrate on a single university.
While informative, the presentation is not a broad view of the problems in American education.
If each character, and there are many, was consistently identified as confederate or federal, I have no doubt that I would have given this work 5 stars.
Many, many generals, captains and so on are mentioned or quoted; unfortunately it becomes hard to discern which side soldier so-and-so is aquatinted with. Anyone listening to the tale would quickly become confused for the storyline gets twisted, and more often than not the question arises... Was general so-and-so a confederate or a federal? One would have to take notes to stay with the plot.
Joe Barrett does a great job in reading the book!
Frustration... I quit listening after the first seven hours. I could not bear another twenty-plus hours of confusion.
This book could have been enjoyable and educational had the characters and the locations been properly and consistently identified.
