Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Narrator James Foster’s enthusiasm and sensitivity to every nuance make this a compelling audio. With both steadiness and phrasing verve, he holds this book together, which is not easy when so much of the book’s ideological payload is delivered deep into the authors’ long-running, information-laden narratives. Foster’s skill with this kind of deductive writing rivets attention and makes the authors’ principles and strategies even more compelling…Winner of the AudioFile Earphones Award.” AudioFile
