The quality of the production was very good. The content was even better. I knew very little about Charlemange prior to listening to the book. Now I know more than I can remember. The author was thoughough and thoughtful. Except for the occasional speculation regarding the internal thoughts of some of the historical figures, I really enjoyed listening.
The production quality was good. The reader had a good voice and communicated the information relatively well. However, the author's "unconventional" and "expert" interpretations and opinions were neither "unconventional" nor "expert". A straightforward communication of the statistics and relative material would have been far more interesting. In short, "Freakanomics" was really "Pooreconomics." The book was highly speculative, biased, dull and worse yet typical. It reminded me of real estate ads that read: "Charming, spacious, great neighborhood!!!!!"
