    This comprehensive series of 84 lectures features three award-winning historians sharing their insights into this nation's past-from the European settlement and the Revolutionary War through the Civil War, 19th-century industrialization, two world wars, and the present day. These lectures give you the opportunity to grasp the different aspects of our past that combine to make us distinctly American, and to gain the knowledge so essential to recognizing not only what makes this country such a noteworthy part of world history, but the varying degrees to which it has lived up to its ideals.

    What made the experience of listening to The History of the United States, 2nd Edition the most enjoyable?

    Not sure what problems the other reviewer had but this audio book is broken up and has all the same breaks as every other Audible book I have ever purchased. On my iPhone app it is broken up into 7 downloadable parts and each lecture is its own separate chapter. So yeah, definitely has intermediate breaks

    The Committee, an international cabal of industrialists and media barons, is on the verge of privatizing all information. Dear Diary, an idealistic online Underground, stands in the way of that takeover, using radical politics, classic spycraft, and technology that makes Big Data look like dial-up. Into this secret battle stumbles an unlikely trio: Leila Majnoun, a disillusioned non-profit worker; Leo Crane, an unhinged trustafarian; and Mark Deveraux, a phony self-betterment guru who works for the Committee.

    What did you like best about Whiskey Tango Foxtrot? What did you like least?

    The story starts of kinda slow but does pick up and was engrossing. What I liked the least is that it is only half of the book. There isn't an ending. The book just stops


    Do you think Whiskey Tango Foxtrot needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    Yes because in current form it is only half a novel


    Any additional comments?

    I really enjoyed this book and the story until it unexpectedly ended. I actually thought I hit a button or something when I started to hear the credits. The book just ends with none of the conflicts resolved or anything. Kinda pissed that the author or publisher or both are trying to get 2 books out of one story. Either the author hasn't finished the writing the book, in which case the book shouldn't have been published till he did. If he did does have a complete book give us he whole damn thing. Movies can get away with 2 or 3 parting what is really one story (Harry Potter, Twilight, Hobbit) because the whole story is already out there in book form and it is advertised and expected. I don't think book publishing can get away with that, at least not yet. But this is definitely Whiskey, Tango, Foxtrox part 1 and not a complete novel.
