In a delightful collection of facts, anecdotes, musings, and historical trivia, Christopher Buckley offers listeners a connect-the-(historical)-dots walking tour of Washington, DC. The slow-witted need not apply. This spirited jaunt is full of satire and asides spanning decades and centuries of American political and popular history. Grover Gardner easily takes charge of this conversational tour. It seems unlikely that in audio form one could actually use this to tour Washington--an Acoustiguide this is not. Gardner captures the irreverence and wry humor, engaging listeners. Admire Buckley's research and wit and enjoy Gardner's excellent delivery. If only all historical tours could be this delightful!
