... not the least of which was that a few times I caught myself wondering "how did they get such a good recording of Douglass?" Many, many pats on the back to Mr. Allen.
I've held Douglass as a hero for many years even without knowing the fullest details of his story. Knowing them now, I'd say first that it was WELL worth the 21 hours of listening to find them out, and second that it only builds my respect for one of our country's great heroes. Any student of American history should invest themselves in this audiobook.

This is the most extensive version of his bio. Narration is spot on. For a greater understanding of the problematic aspects of Lincoln from a sympathetic perspective - the Honorable Douglas provides some valuable narrative of his relationship and understanding of Lincoln and John Brown that we can learn a lot from.

an incredible man with an incredible story, so beautifully written that I couldn't hope to do him justice in my own words. if you haven't yet read this, waste no more time. enjoy
For some reason this book is read in an odd and irritating voice. Sounds most peculiar and I couldnt get used to it. Perhaps Douglass sounded like this. Who knows? Shame as I dont doubt its an important and most revealing view of his times.
