No. You have to take it in bites
What did you love best about Ike and Dick?
For those of us who liked neither of their Presidencies but cannot help being fascinated by the men, this is a superb focus on their relationship, less so on the rest of their momentous lives. One of the ultimate odd couples, they were thrown together, and their families ultimately joined by marriage. The author made me feel empathy for the position of both of these cold men.
Any additional comments?
The performer is one of my favorites. He minimally imposed his personality on the story, which stands well on its own, and he made none of the awkward pronunciation or sentence-splitting errors that annoy when traveling in the world of audiobooks.
