History • 11 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2018

The title of this audiobook sounds as though it should be about war or global politics or something else grand. But while Gaddis draws his examples from war and great political issues, the conclusions he draws about how to plan strategically can be applied to everyday life. As Gaddis is discussing such noteworthies as the Greek general and statesman Pericles, narrator Mike Chamberlain keeps his voice clear and light. Without imitating or creating voices, he marks off longer quotations with pauses and lets context clarify shorter ones. Overall, Chamberlain sounds like a well-read friend who monopolizes the dinner conversation because he really is the most interesting guest. And what he has to say--about history, politics, war, and personal identity--is very interesting indeed. D.M.H. © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 2018]
