Loved every morsel of this work by Lee Strobel. Each and every interviewee has exceptional insight, so much so that I'm about a quarter the way through a fourth listen, it's that detailed. My wife thinks I'm a little dingy, but as a Christian who enjoys apologetics this audio version is truly a rich experience. Some may not like Dick Fredricks' change of voice for each interview, but his remarkable talent (a different, appropriate accent/inflection/pace for each voice) heightens the listening experience for me.
As an avid Rush fan for many years, I consumed this audiobook in two sittings. Enjoyed knowing more of the story -- especially his radio days -- that Rush has mentioned now and then through the years.
Who chose this narrator? Ouch! Annoyingly choppy. Obviously not a Rush listener either, he mangles the "Duddle lit, duddle lit, duddle lit" vocalization Rush leads with in some of his impromptu updates. The narrator also mispronounces Mark Levin's name. Good grief, Mark is a best-selling author and has his own syndicated radio show, can't we get his name right?
The final chapter alone is worth the price of the audiobook. Wiker is masterful in both his precise analysis of each book and the words he chooses. I was blown away. Thank you Benjamin Wiker.
Expressive, nicely-paced delivery by Stossel (after all, he is a professional broadcaster, right?). He snaps off compelling arguments about nearly every hot topic in today's America. If you like his stuff on ABC, you'll dig this, because the listen is laced with actual audio from revealing interviews he conducted over a career that, surprisingly, spans nearly four decades.
Just finished the book this weekend and liked it. His clarity of thought makes me think he's the kind of guy who keeps copious notes in whatever he does. Strikes me as an utterly no-nonsense, honest judge and prosecutor. Disparaged as a "Boy Scout," his high esteem for the rule of law oozes from his words. At times, the listen drags because of Freeh's detail. The Mafia, OK City bombing, Unabomber, Khobar Towers, USS Cole, Sept 11, Clinton investigations, FBI spies, etc. -- it's all here. I read that Joe Lockhart, former Clinton Press Secretary, characterizes the book as "following the right-wing playbook," but Freeh's remarks about Clinton are frank and fair and take an appropriate fraction of the book. Best I can tell, Louis Freeh's political leanings are liberal Republican or even moderate Democrat. He writes favorably of Nelson Rockefeller, Warren Rudman, and Rudy Guliani and has several liberal friends, including Bill Clinton's first White House counsel, Bernie Nussbaum (who recommended Freeh to Clinton), and Bob Bennett, Clinton's lawyer in the Paula Jones case.
