So what? I listen to books. Fine, you're better than me. Your right, I can't spell it but at least I know how to pronounce it.

    Go on an in-depth, 24-lecture exploration of important (and often overlooked) questions about the tumultuous political history of the Americas. Professor Eakin explains the cultural, economic, and political pressures each of these new American nations faced in achieving independence. In addition, he examines exactly why each revolution progressed, and succeeded or failed, as it did.

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    No, I wouldn't recommend this book to a friend.
    Well, it's not really the "audio quality" as much as the production value. To explain, after each sentence there is a 1-3 sec pause, all background noises and static cease and the "dead air" interrupts adding a level discontinuity to lecture. My assumption is that a noise gate was used on the mic or the production engineer used an automated noise reduction that doesn't work well with spoken word. That said, this is more of an issue with headphones - you might not notice if listening on a poor quality player.
