Would you try another book written by Laurence S. Moss or narrated by Louis Rukeyser?
No - the writing did not cover the ground I expected.
Would you ever listen to anything by Laurence S. Moss again?
Have you listened to any of Louis Rukeyser’s other performances? How does this one compare?

Any additional comments?
