it is a shame that this book has to be sold in three seperate volumes by audible. it is an exhaustive and very long book, which is understandable but Audible should come up with packaging it more econimically
But it’s a Kosher frog!
Love him or hate him these masterful volumes explain him. Wanting the "Great Society", for his sins he was given the Vietnam War.
50yrs old / audible member for 5 yrs library. 75% nonfiction, 15% classics and 10% fiction. History/Science/biography/Eng.18th cent fiction
This is one of those books that they have split in 2 so they can get twice the credits for it. Not a smart trend, not smart at all. If they keep this up Ill save the $460 a year I spend here and just get them from the frigin library.
