Gibson's fiction is fantastic and his relation of economic conditions to the modern reader are good (for instance relating the rail building boom and busy to the recent .com bubble) but he applies a pretty significant modern liberal bias to the activities of the people of that era which doesn't belong in a history.
His style is easy to follow and the narrator is very easy to listen to.
Overall I found the experience of the book good.
Disappointing. Completely lacking in deeper reflection. Just a long litany of unconnected facts. Sad! I had to return it.
It listens wonderfully, picks interesting sources and is thought provoking.
What lifts this above many other good history books is the vast amount of information, all of which is interesting.
