You know an audiobook is a success when listening to it makes weeding your garden or painting your fence fun. That’s the case with this memoir by Seymour Hersh. The investigative reporter’s journalistic writing style is straightforward, easy to follow, and eminently suited to audio. Topping that off is the narration of Arthur Morey, who adopts a conversational tone exactly suited to the material. He expresses the author’s outrage over issues such as the Vietnam War and chemical and biological weapons. Yet he also is effective during more personal passages. Hersh offers glimpses of a variety of key late-twentieth-century political figures, giving the audiobook some especially meaty content. Overall, this well-written production is enjoyable to listen to, even while weeding. R.C.G.
