I am very much enjoying this selection for several reasons. First and foremost, it's a really good story that keeps you wanting more. At no point did it ever for a moment become slow.
As a historical reference it offers an excellent gateway to understanding, and wanting to learn more about the pacific campaign.
It does an excellent job covering both the tactical aspects of the raid, as well as the strategy shifts that Japan (wrongfully) adopted as a result of the raid.
What I really liked was that the author leads you in a very logical progression to the battle of Midway, where I'm going to continue on from here.
The reader did make some wackey reading errors, but that was offset by a nice smooth, well paced, and comfortable style.
I've heard a lot of books here on Audible, and this is clearly amoung my favorites. For that I am grateful to the author, the reader, and to Audible.
I hate to say this because I really wanted this book to work. But, this was without any doubt the worst presentation of material I am yet to hear. Spend 20 minutes of your time listening to utterly dreadful writing to get to 60 seconds of real subject matter? Then you are left feeling incomplete because the author goes on with more useless chatter without spending the time to even minimally substantiate that which he has asserted???
There are too many excellent choices here on Audible to waste your time with this wreck..
I enjoyed this book, and was very happy with the narrator. Obviously if you want great, in-depth detail on the various innovators you are going to need to do considerably more reading than this book can provide. But as quick overview with a nicely diverse group of people presented, it worked. My Compliments.
Hands down, the best written and best narrated Audible book I've heard yet. I cannot over emphesize how pleased I am.
