The author looks at war with references to the Greek philosophers, Greek mythology, and the major religions. He mixes in his personal opinions about the soul in battle. As a psychotherapist with years of experience treating veterans with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, he includes patients' conflicted memories as they serve to exemplify his rhetoric. Tick's narration sounds like that of a student reading his first speech, one painful word at a time. Although we hear a few weak impersonations, overall the delivery is shaky and uncertain. On the positive side, he excels at pronouncing the scientific vocabulary. The recording sounds as though it was done in a small space without echo reduction, making it clear why high-quality studio equipment makes a big difference.
