very superficial "story" of William Henry Harrison's life with large gaps between what he was doing through out his life. definitely not for a serious scholar of history
He could have used real, legitimate historical information/quotes/etc instead of what appear to be made up dialog which might have taken place.
no, I'm not a fan of his voice.
if you are looking for a serious biography of this man, this is not it. I'm trying to listen to the biographies of all the US presidents; most are excellent, this was not - hopefully someone else wrote a better account of his life and accomplishments.
