HARD CALL Great Decisions and the Extraordinary People Who Made Them

by | Read by John McCain, Daniel Hugh Kelly

History • 8 hrs. • Abridged • © 2007

With his political intentions so well known, it can be difficult to discern if this is a simple attempt to examine "hard calls" in history or merely McCain's way of demonstrating his knowledge of such events. Of course, the implication is that he, too, knows how to identify such situations and make the right choices. Daniel Kelly uses emphasis and a deliberate pace to good effect as the author discusses events such as the CHALLENGER explosion, the invention of the telephone, and the decisions that led to Jackie Robinson's crossing the color line. McCain's narrations are delivered in a more oratory fashion that resembles speeches or lectures more than actual narration. Much like a campaign speech, the bonus "conversation" sounds a bit rehearsed. L.E. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/ MAY 08]
