Hiltzik's sweeping exploration of the twentieth century's development of industrialized science and its impact on the military is a fascinating lens through which to understand the modern world. Sadly, narrator Bob Souer is not the right choice to bring this history to life. Though his timbre is engaging--deep, with a light rasp--his voice lacks a strong emotional resonance, making much of the narration come across as flat. He can at times provide energy and excitement, but those time are far and few compared to the passages that lack vocal affect. This quality can be particularly challenging for listeners during the complicated technical passages throughout the production. L.E. © AudioFile 2015, Portland, Maine [Published: NOVEMBER 2015]
