Senator Danforth's dry tome is not well suited for audio, especially given his plodding delivery. It is read, slowly, in his funereal speaking voice, and the net effect will be squirming in most seats, as if one is attending an overly long sermon. What it takes Danforth eight CDs to ask and answer is, at heart, "why can't we all just get along?" His strong advocacy of moderation in politics and political discourse, while a worthy goal, is laid out in far too much detail. The author is sincere and his message reasonable, but a professional narrator might have improved the audio experience. However, even with a better voice, this book might not work in audio form.
