Narrator Andrew Eiden gives this utopian audiobook a focused and remarkably convincing reading. Eiden's tone is spot-on, and his reading is thoughtful overall. He lets listeners immerse themselves in a work that celebrates walking and promotes the idea that trespassing is as American as property rights. The author's mission is to tear down the notion that "good fences make good neighbors," replacing it with a new ethic of open walkable places without boundaries. Ken Ilgunas argues that "the right to roam" should be encouraged and our landscapes should be open to anyone who wants to wander there. While the proposals in this short audiobook may not be embraced for decades--if ever--the ideas are worth listening to. And the narration is excellent.
