The first installment in Giles Milton's outrageously entertaining series, History's Unknown Chapters: colorful and accessible, intelligent and illuminating, Milton shows his customary historical flair as he delves into the little-known stories from the past. There's the cook aboard the Titanic who pickled himself with whiskey and survived in the icy seas where most everyone else died. There's the man who survived the atomic bombs in both Hiroshima and Nagasaki. And there are many, many more.

History is replete with fascinating characters and stories. The ones documented in this book are essentially average.

Hear Steve Jobs introduce the iPhone, Lee Iacocca hold forth on the topic of Japanese trade, Warren Buffett's thoughts on the financial future of America's youth, and Jack Welch at his final management meeting as CEO of General Electric. These are just four of the 14 speeches in this amazing collection.

Kind of silly to listen to an anonymous speaker entitled "chapter 3". Frustrating, but I'll just listen and compare to other speakers on YouTube and see if I can figure out who I'm listening to....
