This book is an excellent overview of World War II from start to finish. It often seems like a whirlwind tour, and topics change rapidly. But I guess that’s what has to happen when you condense WWII in to 8 hours. Good narration. Politically neutral, factually and event based. Recommended!

It must take a special set of skills to take a Tony Robbins blockbuster and distill it down into something completely bland and uninteresting! There must be better choices than this summary and reading.

This book has OK information, but doesn't tell it in a very storylike manner. For example, it never really gets in to the miners lives or about the actual mining! The pre-stampede narrative is good though.

The narrators emphasis is all wrong and sounds somewhat condescending and is dramatic at all the wrong times.

Surely there are better choices.
