TRIPLE PACKAGE Why Groups Rise and Fall in America

by | Read by Jonathan Todd Ross

Contemporary Culture • 7 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2014

Why do some ethnic or cultural groups in the United States succeed at greater rates while others lag behind? This audiobook attempts to narrow down the traits that predict success into three areas having to do with equality, self-esteem, and instant gratification. The results might surprise you. In an audiobook that analyzes accomplishments by race and ethnicity, narrator Jonathan Todd Ross has what can be described as an all-American, pleasant, yet somewhat neutral, voice. He delivers the facts with no vocal embellishments or characterizations, instead relying on an authoritative tone, and he's clear and understandable. A drawback is that there's nothing distinctive about his approach to this otherwise fascinating study. R.I.G. © AudioFile 2014, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 2014]
