When I told my granddaughter that I had another Whitney Wallace book to listen to, she became really excited. As we began listening to the book however, I realized that o should probably make my youngest son (17years old) listen to this as well.... LOL. Once again Whitney learns a lesson in life and in turn, we learn the same lesson. Very well done.

This book has a good information, but the delivery is like sitting in a college lecture hall listening to a power point presentation. The author could have provided some background on where he received his information on special forces and the Spartans and how they develop self discipline.

I'm not much of a science fiction fan. This book however had me consumed within the first couple of minutes of listening. I'm not sure what I enjoyed more the story or the narration. Jason Sprenger always does an amazing job narrating his books. The sound effects that he adds helps to bring the books to life. I highly recommend this book to all.

The Vikings maintain their grip on our imagination, but their image is too often distorted by medieval and modern myth. It is true that they pillaged, looted, and enslaved. But they also settled peacefully and developed a vast trading network. They traveled far from their homelands in swift and sturdy ships, not only to raid, but also to explore. Despite their fearsome reputation, the Vikings didn’t wear horned helmets, and even the infamous berserkers were far from invincible.

The information provided in this book is outstanding. There are lots of details and information that I was unaware of. so for that I give this book 4 stars.

However, the narration of this book is what made this book difficult to listened to. The narrator had a monotone throughout the entire book leaving my ears bleeding. 2 stars at best.

I do recommend this book, but warm you to have copious amounts of coffee when doing so.
