No, I won't listen again. Not for a long time. And why not, because there are more where that came from.
Hornblower threatening the life of the annoying doctor if he doesn't save the annoying salvage guy.
Probably the annoying salvage guy. I have a weak spot for experts with stories to tell, annoying or not.
a good tour of a great man, great in the sense of large, powerful, world-changing, not in the spiritual sense!
The view of Russia at that point in time, and getting to know Peter's arch-nemesis Charles the 5th of Sweden. We need a good English-language bio of him, now!
We Will Be Modern (and have ships)
I don't know. I'm not sure I want to listen again. I knew going in how awful the early years of the American Revolution would be. Do I want to listen again to the story of Valley Forge?
Obvious comparison is the bio of Alexander Hamilton. Same time, allies, etc. Also, very well written, both books.
American politics aren't getting worse....
Good perspective that George Washington, though a demi-god in his own time, made significant mistakes and had severe critics, and enemies.
Yes, I probably will listen again. I like to hear the other side of the story.
Information about Mongol culture, as opposed to the stories told about them in European and Chinese history.
Well, it's well done. And I can knit while I listen. : )
Could have, but it is very long.
