I love the personal side of history and this certainly was a personal story. You get a good account of his triumphs and his failures with the hows and whys of both,
The death of his second son at the hands of the indians in a battle that should not have taken place except for bravado and pride was most memorable.
The reader mispronounced some words which I found distracting, however on the whole he was very good. I listen to books in the car while driving and I coldn't be reading myself so readers like Todd are essential.
I wanted to listen to all of it at once. The details in it were not things I already knew and I found it facinating.
The research of this material must have taken a long time and I really appreciate the authors effort in bringing these facts to me iin such a concise and entertaining way.
One of the best.
I would compare this to any of David McCullough's works. The author took a well known historic event and told what happened from many points of view so that you got the whole, real picture in the end.
Yes, on a long road trip.
The tragic events in this book are hard to hear about, but anyone intending to design or build public buildings should be required to listen or read it. The best way to prevent repeating bad history is to know about it.
Well thought out and presented argument.
Although, you need to research further before deciding that the ideas presented are true, it is a good place to begin thinking.
Maybe, I loved listening, but her pronunciation of many words had me pausing to realize what she said. That interrupts the thought process a little, but over all, it was really good.
This book would be a really good tool in discussions with married people who may or may not be having difficulties. It could help solve a problem or just enrich an already good relationship.
I would. It was very informative with out being tedious.
I have recommended this to many. My friend who are in medical care of one kind or another because the systematic process of diagnosis can help anyone who gives medical care.
The teaching method of this physician was patient without being condescending. I learned at lot.
Have no clue, I could not listen to the reader.
I don't know, I couldn't listen to this horrible reader.
I waited for this book to come out on audio from the first I heard of it. The reader ruined it. I tried 2 different time to listen and could not. Please get some one else to read it. I would still love to hear it.
I love non-fictional first hand tales like this and this writer was really good.
Sister Monica Joan made me laugh, think and want to cry.
Nicola Barber seemed to have the rare talent of a great voice and an understanding of the material that allows her to read the story with the right emphasis on the right things. Her various accents were brilliant. I would actually choose anther book on the strength of her reading it alone.
