I met the author (this is the way I got this book) and he is as charming in person as he is his book. Clearly a good networker.
What I enjoyed most about the book is the story-based approach inspired from his personal experience or from the experience of people in his network. Couldn't find a better way to convey a message about networking than sharing stories from your network.
Far from pure theory, the author comes with practical experience from the business world on pretty much every content except Australia and Antarctica. I especially liked how this experience is put in context, as networking in South America may vary substantially than networking in Africa or Eastern Europe.
Last but not least, the book is short and to the point and the Audible edition is narrated by the author himself in a charming French Canadian accented English.

FNH Audio presents a reading of Charles Oman's classic military history A History of the Peninsular War. In this first volume, a detailed examination is made of the first years of the war, 1807 to 1809. The campaign is examined from both sides using reference materials from British, French, Spanish, and Portuguese sources. This book covers the invasion of Spain and Napoleon's trickery in luring the Spanish crown into prison. It also features Wellington's first peninsular battle and of course the famous retreat to Corunna and the battle at that place.

Is anybody reviewing these priductions before the audio release?

  • The Marne, 1914

The long-term repercussions of the Marne were tragic: four more years of what the future German military historian Gerhard Ritter, a veteran of World War I, called the "monotonous mutual mass murder" of the trenches. During that time, Britain and the Empire sustained 3.5 million casualties, France 6 million and Germany 7 million. Without the Battle of the Marne, places such as Passchendaele, the Somme, Verdun, and Ypres would not resonate with us as they do.

Well researched coverage of the dramatic battle of the Marne.
Atrocious pronunciation of French names and places, so bad that it takes your attention away from the great content.
