He spoke clearly.
I wish it were slightly less war-focused. He covered other areas of society besides war, but I wish the balance would have included more art, music, architecture, and writing.
If it were based solely on my enjoyment of the book, I would give it one star overall. But recognizing its influence, the exceptional reading of the audio book by Mark Bramhall, and the extras at the end of this addition (like Burroughs' discussions on addiction), I give it three stars.

I thought this book didn't translate as well for audio format than other books due to how numerous quotes from various scientists would sometimes come across as the voice of the author (until the sometimes long quote was finished and then you hear the who said/wrote the cited text). I felt the narrator could have done a lot to improve this issue by affecting his voice more when reading cited/quoted passages. The narrator otherwise was clear and pleasant. There were also audio 'glitches' (random audio artifacts) throughout, but they were only slightly distracting.
