Founding Brothers started off a bit slow but when it got off the ground, it was interesting. Ellis got to the heart of the matter by telling us the mini-biographies of the revolutionary heros in story form. He condensed lots of research and made history interesting. He depicted the founders as real people. I felt that Ellis took the romance out of the equation and told about our history in a more believable way. Great Americans are just individuals with short comings who do great things.
I am listening to The Clockwork Universe again. There is so much information and the book is so interesting it's one of the few books I've felt compelled to listen to again.
The book gives the culture, belief system and politics during the time the Royal Society began. The author is able to make very complicated ideas pretty simple to understand.
One of the best books I've listened to. Educational and interesting. I recommend this book highly.
The narrator did not detract from the book
Don't miss this book, it's one of the best I've ever read/listened to
