Ponderous, painful, poorly written, poorly read. This work simply fails to find the balance between the big picture and individual experience that marks good history. The threads of the story were not well interwoven and I found myself losing interest in almost everything as a result. It is hard to believe, but this book manages to make the Cuban Missile Crisis seem tedious and unimportant, which it certainly was not. Huge disappointment.
I would like to be able to review this book but the sound quality is so bad I cannot listen to it, not with a great sound system, let alone on my ipod.
