Would you listen to The Course of Human Events again? Why?

I would listen again to this performance because it is inspiring, especially if you love American history or are a family historian.

What other book might you compare The Course of Human Events to and why?

This book is comparable to another book by McCullough; 1776.

Which scene was your favorite?

There is only one scene. McCullough captures the historical essence of a famous painting which depicts the signing of the Declaration of Independence.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I was left with deep feelings of patriotism and reverence for the individuals who made great personal sacrifices before, during and after the Revolution.
