This was a random pick to listen to while gaming. I mainlined it over a few sessions back in April and started a draft of this post but I never seemed to have finished and posted it. Alas.
Anyway, it is pretty dry. Interesting, though, in the way that complex historical subject documentaries are interesting, but I doubt this would appeal to the casual historian. Some of the reviews of this book note that several passages are repetitive and that is true. As I read this via audiobook, I would also like to comment on how comfortable I remember the speaker's voice to be. Not too monotonous, comfortably paced without excessively unnecessary emotional inflections and, perhaps stereotypically, a male speaker. Overall, a good filler for spare time, not worth a re-read.
