I enjoyed this book when I first read it several years ago, and hearing it on tape is just as good. Studs Terkel has an amazing voice (from years on radio) and it's excellent to hear him read the introduction. I also enjoyed the other narrators. It's the individuals in the book that really drew me in. Terkel has a knack for making each story come alive with rich details of the human experience. He brings to light the extraordinary attributes of seemingly ordinary people and vice versa. In this book he has captured a snapshot of America, not the way it will be found in history books, but the way it was by the people that lived it.
