Would you listen to El Seductor de la Patria (Texto Completo) again? Why?

Excelente narración. Soy historiadora e, independientemente de la evaluación científica de Serna, es una obra obligatoria y, ya que el libro de papel es enorme, escucharlo así aligera la "lectura". Además del placer de la narración que parecería que una está escuchando a Don Antonio. ¡Totalmente recomendable!

Great way to learn some Mexican history

I loved this book. It follows the life of a major Mexican revolutionary and politician during the founding of the Mexican state. It is brilliantly written and very engaging. I did have a bit of trouble keeping track of all of the characters, but that's a minor complaint and if I weren't completely ignorant of Mexican history that probably wouldn't have been a problem. I came away from this book with a basic feel for how Mexico as a state came into being, and a better understanding of US history as well.
