An Absolutely Captivating Work

This is as adjacent to amend as a brief introduction to the history of Mexico could be, and hopefully, the more onerous and interested listeners will follow up with a more in-depth study such as Meyer's Course of Mexican History, or the Oxford History of Mexico.

A top reference work.

Anyone interested in the history of revolutions will be fastened by the observational evidence of these details combined with the description.
Outstanding historical work and the details lead to the wonderful narrative. This work was referenced to me as Mexican history.

Follow it to gathering a knowledge of Mexico

A history of the violent nature of Mexico when the country joined the U.S as an Allie in WW2. Details are a prized contribution. Five presidents were slaughtered. Two drowned in office. It is astounding that the country held together, nice work Jason Zenobia.

Excellent audiobook!!!

I love how the audiobook is addressed, a great idea that the Mexican people who made history tell us how they did it, also the instance is excellent, without a doubt I can follow other books by the same author.

This audiobook is great! The details are awesome. greatly addressed. I will say that as someone who wants my money to be used to empower people, I was disappointed that the audiobook was written by a man but it has inspired me to look more into these women so thank you!

So much good information

It presented a concise overview of the state. Appropriate for all ages. Informative but not in-depth. It does not offer a great deal you probably don't already know if you're a history buff.

An Excellent Historical Chronicle of Revolution!!

This was an outstanding reflection of the very complicated nature of the Mexican Revolution and the lead up to it during the Presidency of Diaz. If you are new to Mexican history, or intimate with it and just require a refresher of all the issues of the Revolution, I highly suggest this audiobook.

I am happy and satisfied.

Listening to this audiobook was like listening to Mexico through its historian. As if the country spoke in the first person, changed clothes, and described its daughters through its present. The story is to listen beyond time and space because it is like entering and leaving various rooms to see and listen to Mexico as a writer, painter, doctor, journalist, and always a heroine.

This audiobook, more than history, is about reflection for those who in our twentieth prime-age question the value of women. All rights earned by our mothers, friends, wives are thanks to a constant struggle to defend the right to be Mexican, and that these struggles take place on the battlefields of the arts, science, and always from the intelligentsia.

Could not put it down!

Before listening to this audiobook all I knew about the Mexican Revolution was what I had witnessed in the videos. I always wanted an obvious narration of the events of the Revolution. This audiobook does give this clear narration.

Mexican history blunders and power grabbers

Excellent detail. A few inferences could have been stronger with commentaries and thoughtful. The Latin phrases and classical parable might break the flow for some readers.
Of the many, books and reports I have seen on the Mexican Revohis is one of the ten best and the best combination.

Now I know that Mexico History

My kid is happy with this audiobook, even though the information in each biography is brief, it encourages her to seek more information.
For parents, it is a great discovery of important people in our history that some of them unfortunately do not know.

Beautiful audiobook

It seems that I did not adore this audible as much as others, but I still believe that it is an audible worth listening to.

I had never heard of many of these women, and I learned a lot. It was interesting and inspiring.

But ... I didn't like the style so much, as if each person spoke directly to the listener, inviting you to come in, to sit down. That would be interesting for two or three stories, but after many stories in a similar style, it started to be repetitive and unnatural. Also, most of the voices sounded very similar. I couldn't forget that I was listening to an audiobook, and I think the best audibles take you to the middle of the story and make you forget that you are listening.

Also, this is difficult to explain, especially in a language that is not my native language, but ... audibles like this one, that talk a lot about how women are important and women are smart and women can do what men can do ... sometimes these audiobooks have the opposite effect of the goal. Of course, women are important and clever and capable. Focusing on this so much, as if it were new information, sometimes it seems like a step backward. But, maybe I'm too sensitive. I think an audiobook like this would be more powerful if it focused more on the interesting details of their extraordinary lives, giving us unforgettable stories. We would understand the subtle message that women are important and clever and capable without the sermon. But ... that's just my opinion.

It is interesting, with many important and admirable figures. I recommend that you read slowly, one story at a time. Maybe the problems I mentioned would go away.

Excellent Summary

Well recorded, accurate, and scanty - nearly too concise. All the people who made up the history spread composed of were very well planned and their assistance given their due value.
