"Anyone looking for a concise, interesting history of the seminal event in our nation's past should listen to this book. The author, one of the foremost historians of our age, has done a marvelous job explaining the causes and motivations leading to the Revolution. Jack Garrett's narration matches the book's tone exactly. He approaches the text with an authoritative tone and uses expert pacing to guide us through the story. Garrett's voice is clear and warm, and he makes us comfortable and eager to absorb Wood's words. He varies his pitch and inflections just enough to keep us wondering what might happen next, even though the story will be familiar to most readers. R.I.G. (c) AudioFile 2003, Portland, Maine"
