    This political science classic still has the power to shock, just as it did when first published almost 500 years ago. Fritz Weaver reads in an appropriately detached manner, for it is this air of objectivity regarding the ruthless pursuit of political power that has made Machiavelli's name synonymous with evil. This quality recording begins and ends with ceremonial music, which sets the right tone for a treatise directed to royalty.

    "Eye opening."
    Overall

    There has always been such an ominous air about Machiavelli that I couldn't help but investigate. I listened to this book while at work (I love audiobooks!) and i couldn't believe how much I enjoyed this. I am always amazed when reading old classic non-fiction books. We as a people have NOT changed. The production of this reading was good. The narrators voice was clear and he kept a decent pace. Five star performance all around. If you were curious enough to find this, you will enjoy it.

    Former U.S. President Richard Nixon candidly reflects on his career and discusses such topics as the USSR., Mikhail Gorbachev, secrecy, Watergate, and more.

    Overall

    Too often, people assume to know celebrities and political figures based on the picture of them the media has presented you. We, being the busy folks we are, might benefit from taking the time to meet our leaders and learn who they are. Leaders are often condemned for making the decisions we insist they make. Hearing Richard M. Nixon tell his own story makes the experience akin to listening to your grandfather spin a yarn about the old days. His deep timbre and disciplined meter make for a peaceful and pleasing listen. If you've ever been curious about the real story of Nixon, for once, hear his side uninterrupted, undistorted, and unforgettable.
