Basics were great

This book brought mixed feelings as I was very interested and pleased with the subject matter and its handling, but the contextualisations where many times for me disingenuous.

It felt that writer went great lengths not to alienate "American exceptionalism and War on terror" indoctrinated. It also seemed that writers own comfort zone was long way left. This mix made the book in parts seem so disingenuous. If you can pass that, you are in for very insightful journey.

A nightmare to try and manage

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

This audiobook downloaded in a disconnected bunch of 1(ish) hour segments. Some segments began at the start of chapters, others did not. Further, Audible didn't automatically parse them together as per usual. Each segment was treated as its own audiobook. Finally, I couldn't find a beginning segment. I've used Audible a lot, and in this presentation, Audible seriously let me down.
