BOOK HAS NO TABLE OF CONTENTS DONT BUY

Until they can provide something other than chapter 1,2,3 (no names or table of contents) for over 20 hours of audio, very stupid. Don't buy. I contacted support and they just said sorry that's all we have. I'm going to keep it I think eventually they might bother to list the chapters and what books they go to, until then - Don't buy this book.

Three Amazing Stories Told by Three Amazing Men

While the narration (and sometimes even the content) could be a bit dry, the lessons in these 3 life stories are invaluable and extraordinary.

Title misleading, performance so-so

The title is quite misleading. Most of this book is the AB of Ford (which is very interesting). Tesla is rather short and strange (mostly "I had visions and from them invented things"). Franklin is more concise but mostly interesting when he talks about his life, instead of moralizing (which he seems to do a lot).

Regarding the performance. Not only is it rather monotonous, but the narrator seems to get confused from time to time, repeat words or phrases (at one point a whole paragraph if not more was read twice).

Excellent collection

This was a good way to get exposed to 3 great men. Surprisingly, Henry Ford's was the most insightful!

Good Collection

This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.

It's a short Collection of autobiography's about three of history's greatest influences from different times in history.
The narrator did a good job with this especially with the different facts about the persons in the book.

Learn about very different men

This collection gives the listener an interesting amount of information by very different men from various corners of life.

The Narrator presents the material as a Pro and helps the listener absorb a great deal of facts which are very interesting.

pronounced Duquesne wrong, but great reader

I really enjoyed the autobiographies of these men.
great reader and interesting facts about each man. Henry Ford was most practical in running an industrial factory. to me, most interesting.

Enjoyable listening but tough going in spots

The information was mostly interesting but often hidden amongst the verbosity and vernacular of the day.

It was a long haul to finish but offered a different, if not sometimes disjointed, perspective of events and their perspective. Thus, with the different mindsets of the day, different impressions result.

The information was at its best, in my opinion, when it espoused the work and life philosophies of these great historical figures - how ever briefly that was
