Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
Yes, The most interesting content was delivered via lecture which I enjoyed and which facilitated remembering the details. I learned so much about BF.
What was one of the most memorable moments of The Modern Scholar?
Hearing that BF was one of the two "indispensable characters" of the American Revolution and founding of our country. Also that BF was, in the author's opinion, "the great genius of our country."
What about the narrator’s performance did you like?
Loved it. I look forward to buying Professor Brands books and listening to his other lectures. He is terrific!!!
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
I am blown away that one person could do so much. It is essential that our children learn about his life. BF embodies the American Dream, rising through his own efforts from poor beginnings to wealth and lasting greatness.
