'Greatest' is the word...
Hall of Fame, no doubt. I'm an avid reader (60yrs old w/3k+ books behind me) so here in my going-on 'golden years' I've begun adding audio books to my daily commute. Should have done it LONG ago. Duh. But the pleasure is greater, I suppose, and this title in particular took me for a ride in the WayBack machine. Yes, I DO remember the '60s; when sci-fi made you think. Hall of Fame, Vol. 2-A has several of the best titles from that or any era. And FYI? If you're familiar with the movie 'Idiocracy' (loved it, HIGHLY recommend it) the plot was clearly stolen from Cyril M. Kornbluth's 'The Marching Morons'. I wouldn't bother mentioning this, but the movie credits gave no credit... and that ain't right. Get this audiobook (and the others in the series). Listen... and learn.

I ordered this and its previous volume on the presumption that Audible had bothered themselves to format it in some way. They haven't. As a result you've no idea what's on the file. it's a total of 43 hours of continuous speech, and labled "Chapter 1", "Chapter 2" etc.
You've not a clue what's what's playing and what might be next, and they haven't even included text to help you sort it out. As a result, although the content is great, your chances of finding (or even knowing about) a given story are negligible
Can't recommend for any purpose.
