    "No metadata - You have to guess who is speaking"
    What did you like best about Great Speeches of the 20th Century? What did you like least?

    Obviously, it's quality content. But, it would be nice to know the "who/when/where" of each of the speeches. Many are obvious, but there are more than a few that I couldn't pick out.

    Additionally, the chaptering doesn't seem to coincide with the speeches. One chapter contains more than one speech.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Bob Blaisdell? Why or why not?

    Any additional comments?

    Metadata and/or a better description on the Audio Book detail page would be very helpful.

    "Disappointing"

    Perhaps I should have realised from the fact that these are the original recordings of speeches, but the recording quality of some of these is awful and very distracting. The speeches are presented with no introduction, so unless you recognise the speech by the voice of the speaker, or the content, you will have no way of knowing who is speaking. Iexpected an introduction to each one or at least a title, but navigating this is impossible.

    "I expect more..."

    I expect some brief introduction on who is going to speak and the historical circunstances of the speech..there is nothing but the speeches.. very frustrating..
