THE CONFIDENT YEARS

I don't know if it was me or the book, but I found myself constantly thinking about other things while listening to this book. I'm a history buff, and it's not because the subject matter bored me. The only thing I can think of is the way it was written. I even stopped listening to it for a few days then came back, and the same thing happened. If you're looking for a good review about this book, I will say it is full of information that most people don't know.So in that respect????

A Very Good Overview From The 1960s

I enjoyed this audiobook very much. I learned a lot. Although a history I do feel the work is slightly dated in format as it contains very little about the ongoing struggle for Civil Rights of African Americans. I feel that if written now there would be more information about that aspect of American History. But the book is nonetheless very informative. It was easily followed and I could listen while commuting and mostly follow the narrative. Thank You…
