Interview with famous anthropologist

The fascination that Jack Weatherford has with Mongolia come through the interview loud and clear. He makes me want to hop a plane and go see Mongolia myself. They discuss the two book he wrote one about Genghis Khan and the other about Genghis Khans wife's and daughter in the Mongol Queens. I read both books and they are great. They talked about his book on money and one on American Indians but just briefly. I was hoping the interview would provide me with more insight into Weatherford, which it did but I wish there was more. The interview was only 11 minutes. It is great that Audible provides these short free interviews of authors.

Good Interview but too short.

I wish this could have been longer. Jack weatherford is a great writer and speaker. I hope he writes a book about his years in Mongolia, the trials, tribulations, culture and experiences experienced during his research.

Get this if you read/listened to Genghis Khan or Mongolian Queens. It is a bit of insight into the author himself.

A lesson in preparation

A frustrating interview to listen to, entirely due to the poor skills of the interviewer and his complete lack of preparation.
He umms & ahhs, stumbles over the words of his questions, and jumps between Weatherford's books with no attempt at linking the topics. A shame as I am sure Jack Weatherford would be a very interesting interviewee, given the chance to speak freely.
