Or at least your understanding of American history. The book untangles much of America's deceit and delusions about its racial history and lays it all out for you.

I won't be a spoiler but, after you have slogged through hours of tediously overwritten prose you are bound to be disappointed by the completely contrived conclusion. Can someone please let the author know less is more? Every moment need not be described in endless detail. It undermines what otherwise might have been a good story.

Accents matter in performance, and the ones in this performance are shockingly inconsistent, cringe-worthily incorrect, and sadly distracting. This book deserves so much better.

It is hard to imagine what one might use this for. Just random lists of words spoken quickly and often unintelligbly.

Well written, gripping story of the disastrous 1900 Galveston hurricane with a great deal of general information on hurricanes and their forecasting. Strikes eerie parallels with Hurricane Katrina. Makes you wonder if it is possible for us to learn from history. We should certainly give it a try. Just in that context, the book is well worth listening to.
