What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?
I couldn't get past the negativity of the forward. I started listening to all this bragging about who he was and where his family was from and I just went "Ugh!" I really haven't gotten to listen to the point of the story yet because I was so annoyed by the forward of the book
What was most disappointing about Nelson Aldrich’s story?
I was looking for books on the habits of old money, not bragging of old money.
You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?
Refund me my listening credits, it was a total waste of my goals.
