This work has a split personality. Jay Winik the author has written a terrific bit of history about one of the most important months in United States history. Unfortunately, Jay Winik the narrator has ruined his own book. With all of the vocal talent available, it's difficult to understand why Winik was chosen, or chose, to narrate. There's little variation in his voice, so all lists sound the same, the ends of sentences sound the same, he stumbles over words, and his idea of a character voice is to read louder. In short, this sounds like an amateur production and is a very disappointing effort. By all means, read this important book--in print. R.I.G.
