If you could sum up Edmund Burke in three words, what would they be?
Smart, detailed, relevant
How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?
Perhaps more about Burke's personal life, about his wife, etc. We get little in this regard in exchange for a detailed look at his career.
What does Antony Ferguson bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
The British accent helps, since Burke was British. His reading is done well and is enthusiastic.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
His prediction about how the French Revolution would turn out, which was almost exactly correct except for a couple of small details.
Any additional comments?
If you want to understand Burke's positions on government, revolution and the civil society, this will satisfy you. If you're looking for a life story about Burke where you get to know the man personally, this is not to be expected. It is a good book and I have no regrets.

Liberal politicians are inclined to think that their ideas are self evidently right and that logic should make this clear to all people who want to see fairness. But Burke and Trump both understood that good people's emotions play a huge roll in what feels fair.
