This is another great listen for anyone interested in presidental history. Each review is not too long but you feel you still get a great deal of history about each man.
The writing and narration are very good. The occasional transparent jabs at the Bush Administration are a bit strange for historical works, but, the writers are myopic journalists and not historians. It is still a good listen.
Addicted to Audible since 2009
Although this book didn't wow me, I did like it and I enjoyed this listen, especially the first part.
I bought the book to hear Jefferson, having recently read John Adams. However, since I knew nothing at all about Grant (other than the little I learned in early history classes) I was fascinated by the entire section on Grant.
I have not, but he is an absolutely outstanding artist. Deeper masculine voice very well modulated. I enjoyed every word.
