Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?
Nope. It is nothing but recycled information from "Killing the Rising Sun" or whatever the name of his book on the Pacific Theater in WWII. The other book was good and so was this one. Just feel screwed since I had literally already heard every word of it.

Where does The Day the World Went Nuclear rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
I didn't realize that this was almost an excerpt from Killing the Rising Sun: How America Vanquished World War II Japan. Having reading Killing the Rising Sun and American Prometheus, this was just review.
What did you like best about this story?
I found it interesting that Paul Tibbets Jr. named the plane after his mother, but the plane had been named and flown by another. I didn't know that Paul Tibbets Jr. didn't make the second flight because he wanted another to have the glory.
What does Robert Petkoff bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
I enjoyed the voice.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
It was easy to listen to in one sitting.
