This was a new and interesting presentation of the story of the Booth family. I can't say I appreciate the way blame for J.W.B. seemed to be laid at Edwin's door as though he were the only person who molded the assassin's character or lack thereof.
The single most bothersome thing about this book was the repetitiveness of facts already presented. There were multiple instances, presented multiple times -- one wonders where the editor was.
I was gobsmacked that the fact that Edwin saved the life of Robert Lincoln wasn't mentioned.
The only reason I decided to write this review was there seemed to be only 4 and 5 star reviews with no mention of the repetitiveness and I feel it weakened the book.
I actually had to stop listening to this. The mispronounciations were as fingernails on a chalkboard.
