This is the first book in a very long time that I listened to again immediately after the first listen. Rich in theology and a good performance. I would recommend this to anyone
Yes. It is informative and encouraging. It is also a great study of salvation history from a Catholic perspective.
Not likely. The one negative about the book is that the reader just didn't seem all that interested in what he was reading. The beginning was especially difficult to listen to and then the performance got a bit better, then flat, then better - I think you get the idea.
No. The subject matter needed time to digest.
Dr. Hahn has a great talent in writing in that he can make heady theology approachable to all levels. When he speaks he is very engaging. Publishers of audio books should take better care in matching readers to the authors.
This book brought to life an event in history with clarity and accuracy. It was not full of conspiracy, nor did it debunk any. It was a very refreshing approach to a subject that has been accounted so many times it would be hard to make it seem fresh. Bill O'Reilly succeeds where many fail.
Since it is a lecture format, and is delivered by Prof. Madden, is is flawless in performance. Very engaging and easy to listen to.
A part of American history not often mentioned in the books.
The Worst Hard Times. About the people who stayed behind on the dust bowl farms. This was also a time of great migration in the US
Well read, well researched and
Entertaining. I had a belly-laugh at some of it, but mostly it was a gathering of truisms that were well written, but often repeatative. It was still fun and I bookmarked many to share with my wife. Performance was so-so. It would have been more listenable if the reader was not so obviously white! If we are making fun of a race, would it not be plausible for another race to present it? I know the author is white, but that does not mean the reader needs to be.
Yes, but to a limited audience.
Plenty of case studies.
Presentation was a little flat and I had a hard time imagining the reader really wanted to be doing this one.
Like most books based on the authors own research, it was a little over the top with self-grandizement. It was, non-the-less very interesting and gave reason to think about things from a different perspective.
Informative, told through the eyes of a very personable perspective. I enjoyed listening to it and will listen again (and maybe more)
Yes, but was not able to.
More scholrly than Hahn's other works, but certainly easy enough to grasp. Historically accurate.
I thought theat the content was well balanced and reliable. If I had read the book and not listened to it, I would have enjoyed it just as much. It gave me much to think about.
OK, here is where the bulk of my problem lies: The reading was mechanical, sometimes to the point that I seriously doubted it was done by a human being. The reader also simply did not take the time or make the effort to learn to pronounce many of the Catholic terms that were used. His indifference in preparation and recitation showed me that he would rather have been reading almost anything else and made the listen, at time both irritating and distracting. Even common words were sometimes an issue
