Great topic, disappointing execution

I was really looking forward to listening to this book after having listened to several excellent Audible-recommended nonfiction books in a row (this one also came recommended).

Sadly, I found the writing both didactic and oddly padded with extraneous details. It sounded—dare I say it—like a school term paper peppered with editorialized adjectives until it was long enough to be called a book.

I found most of the readers slow and emotionless. The readers trade off chapters, and there was only one in the group that I found at all engaging.

You'd think with such a fascinating topic to work with, the author or the readers would have been able to breathe more life into these stories.
