wheels of change review

I believe this book was well written, and spoken very well. I struggle with reading books so I am very appreciative that there is an audio version. The only reason I wouldn't give it a completely over all five stars is that I was confused when the narrator would reference page numbers. If possible, it would be really great to include some sort of summary or explanations on the story the dates, the sources of information simply because it was treated very quickly and there were many many different sources. Thank you for the recording I appreciate everything that the narrators do and mostly I am grateful for audible.com and the ability to learn and discover the joy of reading, or well listening to books that have great significance in our history🤗
