You won't regret easing into this masterpiece. Story, philosophy, and production fit so well as to be both seamless and highly engaging.

May be an excellent listen...if you can stay awake

I tried. I really, really tried to listen to what I know would be a great book, but Peter Ganim delivers this like stale bread.
I've read phone books more engaging than the dry near monotone of this production.
I'm considering using this as a sleep aid.

A call to action, a tale of betrayal.

Ray Porter delivers this deep and troubling treatise with a convincing voice and rhythm that keeps the listener engaged. It is a dense and rich book, very unnerving and fraught with clarion warning of the damage done by our own rapacious greed to our future and present security.
This is a book anyone with a concern for global threats and national security will find immensely enriching.

Can we expect anything else?

Engaging and intricate, weaved with precision and performed so engagingly, time does not matter. Took me from Vancouver to Winnipeg, and the miles faded.

A lot of hockey 🏒 and a solid story.

A plot that threatens to move the reader to tears, while written with great tenderness and imagination, did leave me at times annoyed by the repetition and detail in the hockey scenes.
Ultimately, it's well worth a listen.

An excellent general history of one of Europe's most influential early societies. Touches on various debates on Roman history and gives a solid foundation for more specific study.
Some trouble with vocal modulation, making some passages difficult over external background noises, but overall well presented.
