Professional reviews

"Two of history's most distinctive voices--literally and politically--clash while working for the same goals. The deep-voiced Eric Conger delivers a flat yet consistent tone to the historical narrative. Disappointingly, he uses no variation to differentiate the oft-imitated president or the German-American diplomatic advisor. Such vocal characterization would have enhanced the experience of hearing this solid, well-researched summary of the political challenges facing Nixon--China, Russia, Vietnam, and the ever-present Watergate. Even slight imitations would have added color. Still, listeners glean a decent understanding of Nixon's demeaning and suspicious ways, Kissinger's ego and interests in world negotiations, and the pivotal crises they faced. M.B.
