The idea of a world survey of 1913 was great, but there is no strong theoretical thread, nor narrative thread in this work. It seems like a series of postcards, but the postcards aren't those funny or interesting ones we liked to get (back when people actually sent postcards), but are instead those common cards that show the 'important' buildings, or the local celebrities.
Stillwell has a great voice, but his mispronunciations become more and more distracting.
I would have liked skimming through this book in a paper or electronic version. It doesn't have enough continuity to sustain a lengthy listen.
