This is a great book, but the sound is horrible! I only was able to bear the strugle to listen to the words because I was really interested in listening to Josephus. Honestly you really have to pay much attention ( a real struggle ) to really understand certain parts of the book.
Anyway, the book itself shows by the words of Josephus himself how that wicked generation of 70AD was brought to destruction. It's hard not to feel indignation against that generation as you listen to Josephus eyewitness account of what they did to each other. According to Josephus, it was like God himself was bringing destruction upon these people and the temple. Apparently a repeat chastisement as took place by the Babylonians of 607BC. Wether you are a Jew or a Christian, this is a very good book to read. Although I would rather read the written version rather than listening to this horrible recording.
I was interested in this book mostly because of its literary history. I wanted to see what people back then were interested in through their writings. I would say the story was ok, but not great by any means. On the other hand, this is NOT a book for children, it contains very erotic and pornographic parts in it, so be warned. Would I recommend? Maybe only to people like me who really are interested in history and so you can say that "you've read it". Otherwise if you're looking for an interesting book, avoid this one.
This is about a biography of psychologists and not what I expected. Very boring.
