Great Audio History

5 out of 5 stars

Reviewed: 07-05-03

A fantastic audio book. The same material on paper wouldn't be nearly as good. It's thrilling to hear Johnson and others as they discuss the great issues of their time.
Beschloss is an excellent guide, as he provides the historical setting for each of Johnson's actual tapes.

A Major Disappointment

1 out of 5 stars

Reviewed: 06-18-03

John Feinstein is a very smart sportswriter, with keen insigths into many issues. And he has an interesting, engaging voice. But I'm sorry to say that, in my opinion, this book was simply terrible.
It sounds like an official history coffeetable book written by a PR hack. Hundreds of people come and go through the book, but there is no drama and few interesting characters.
