    "Interview with famous anthropologist"

    The fascination that Jack Weatherford has with Mongolia come through the interview loud and clear. He makes me want to hop a plane and go see Mongolia myself. They discuss the two book he wrote one about Genghis Khan and the other about Genghis Khans wife's and daughter in the Mongol Queens. I read both books and they are great. They talked about his book on money and one on American Indians but just briefly. I was hoping the interview would provide me with more insight into Weatherford, which it did but I wish there was more. The interview was only 11 minutes. It is great that Audible provides these short free interviews of authors.

    "Good Interview but too short."

    I wish this could have been longer. Jack weatherford is a great writer and speaker. I hope he writes a book about his years in Mongolia, the trials, tribulations, culture and experiences experienced during his research.

    "Scripted A/Q"

    This was the most awful conversation that I ever heard between two people. It seems like the questions was written after Weatherford express his comments. The book is not much better either. I'm not a fan of this author at all, even more so after listening to this interview.

    "A fascinating man"

    I could listen to Jack Weatherford talk more about his fascination with the people of Mongolia.

    When I drive, I read... uhm listen. I like SciFi, Fantasy, some Detective and Espionage novels and Religion. Now and then I will also listen to something else.

    "Terrible interviewer"

    While Jack Weatherford throws some light on his life work in Mongolia, I was amazed to hear the interviewer "uhm" "okay" and reflecting one trivial issues that he said. It felt so artificial.

    "A lesson in preparation"

    A frustrating interview to listen to, entirely due to the poor skills of the interviewer and his complete lack of preparation.
    He umms & ahhs, stumbles over the words of his questions, and jumps between Weatherford's books with no attempt at linking the topics. A shame as I am sure Jack Weatherford would be a very interesting interviewee, given the chance to speak freely.
