This audiobook outlines the extraordinary life of James Bryant Conant, president of Harvard, transformative academic, nerve gas chemist during WWI, and a leader of the Manhattan Project. These are but a few of his many accomplishments. Written by Conant's granddaughter and narrated skillfully by Fred Sanders, this biography is as interesting as any page-turner, thanks to Sanders's spot-on delivery and author Conant's storytelling. Sanders excels by mixing styles, at times using a newsreel-style delivery, while at other times using a tone of appreciation that mirrors the listener's awe at Conant's accomplishments. Although the audiobook is more than 24 hours long, it goes by quickly because of the many facets of Conant's larger-than-life achievements.
