Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by David McCullough

Biography & Memoir • 6 hrs. • Abridged • © 1992

David McCullough, host and narrator of several PBS series and documentaries, does a wonderful job of tracing the life story of our thirty-third president, Harry S. Truman. This is a double treat; not only is Truman a meticulously researched and fascinating biography, but McCullough’s narration is thoroughly engaging and entertaining. His even-paced, expres-sive presentation and the quiet power behind his words bring many emotions to the trials and triumphs of this great American. Hearing Truman’s own voice from recordings of his speeches and his piano rendition of The Blackhawk Waltz enhance this audio experience far beyond that of just reading the book. A.A.B.
