I had read the print book a while ago, recalling that I'd liked it (and nothing else), so decided to drop an Audible credit to re-read it in audio format.
Structurally, the first part consists of (brief) overviews of various Latin American and European nations, based upon Pritchett's visits. Longer, in-depth portraits of the USA, Canada, and England (with London treated separately); I must admit that I wasn't all that interested in the final hour of the narrative, focusing on the author's impressions of Appalachian America. That part aside, I'm glad I bought the book, which I'd recommend as an insight into those places before the homogeneity of globalization.
Narrator reminded me quite a bit of actor James Mason.
