Shame about the voice

Mabey is always worth attention, and this is a fine collection of his columns. Sadly, the narrator is one of these rather sardonic types who seem to suck much of the life out of good prose. Still, the content is good enough to make up for it and make this worth a listen.

Thought provoking and gripping. I feel I better understand the world I live in my placing it in my responsibilities to it
