Sclessinger read and interpreted by Nelson Runger provides a very enjoyable experience well worth a couple of listens.
This memoir, more of an intimate history of the times, focuses on the people more than mere events in telling in a vivid fashion what is was like to grow up and live in the first fifty years of the momentous twentieth century. Schlessinger draws from his personal experiences to describe the interwar years in the Ivy League, then a very comprehensive yet readable account of the New Deal, or, rather the New Dealers. Throw in the liberalalization of U.S. politics, including the nascent Communists and finish with a most unusual look at Harry Truman, and you have a very intoxicating look at the first half of the century.
