Author Dan Abrams reads his introduction, and the rest of this audiobook is narrated by Roger Wayne. The similarity of their voices is striking. Wayne does a first-rate job with this fascinating account of a little-known libel suit involving former President Theodore Roosevelt. New York Republican Party Chairman William Barnes sued Roosevelt in 1915 for saying that Barnes was a "political boss of the most obnoxious type." He asked for $50,000 in damages. Wayne helps create the suspenseful and emotionally fraught mood of the courtroom--with all of Roosevelt's larger-than-life personality on display. The dialogue and courtroom interrogations are vividly brought to life, making this a thrilling listen, especially for history lovers.
