"No American president has told his story as powerfully as Ulysses S. Grant." (William S. McFeely, historian)
Most don't know that this book (aside from the bible) was the most successful book sold in America DURING the 19th century, and that for that entire century, Grant was the most popular American among US citizens hitorically, more than even Abraham Lincoln.
This book, more than any other, has taught me to appreciate American History. I own it in hard copy as well, but have listened to the audio version three separate times. Grant has an amazingly easy to follow and interesting reading style. The book being proof-read by Mark Twain himself may have been an assist in that regard ;o).
Thanks, Audible. Loved the book!
This is justifiably praised as one of the classics of American literature and one of the best autobiographies ever written, but I found it impossible to listen to because it was so detailed in that I wanted to re-read certain sections and to have a map handy for frequent reference - both quite difficult in this format.
