I was excited to hear this since I have a strong interest in the topic but couldn’t endure the pain and confusion of listening to this. This “book” is apparently a direct adaption from something video. Therefore, there is no character development or introduction, just the random insertion of a name and some seeming disjointed rambling with no proper context.
Don’t expect it to have a noticeable story line or even make sense. It is definitely meant to me seen, not heard. Sort of like watching a sporting event with a blindfold on; you get the sense that something must be happening but can’t quite figure it out.
In summary - painful, painful, painful.

Sadly, I had never heard of Elizabeth Friedman prior to this book. I was familiar with Bletchley Park and their work but not the Friedmans. The author did a wonderful job of presenting her in her entirety. She painted her as an unassuming, humble soul whose brilliance was under appreciated.
This book stands as an homage to all the unsung, unknown heroes who, while toiling in obscurity, truly impacted the world.
I feel I am enriched by getting to know Mrs. Friedman.
