Really enjoyed this seemingly well researched and documented account of the influence of Ike on US and world history. Appears a fair account discussing successes and failures, positive and negative impact, personal strengths and shortcomings. I found the whole book thoroughly absorbing. Highly recommended.

highly recommended. particularly good for those dissatisfied with the standard christian answers for the problem of suffering and some of the very troubling parts of the old testament. Dr Ehrman is a masterful teacher. provocative, thoughtful and straightforward. I benefited greatly from this book.

Thoroughly recommended.

A brilliant book, well presented and enjoyable. Very easy listening. Comes across as a fair book, not pushing any agenda and without an axe to grind. Dr Ehrman gives his own views and interpretations but makes it clear there are other views that sensible, rational and scholarly people hold. Highly recommended for Christians and others who want to improve their understanding of Jesus, the Bible and Christianity. I have listened to other books by Dr Ehrman, all extremely good.

very enlightening - highly recommended.

Compelling listening. Highly informative, engaging and wonderfully presented. It seems to me a very fair account of the British Empire. The quotes and anecdotes are amazing. So much is this book that I did not know. Highly recommended to all students of history, particularly Britain's or those from former colonies.

Brilliant story, wonderfully written and narrated.

an enlightening book with strongly stated views. lots of references to scholars, scientists and others that I have never heard of ( would take a lot of effort to verify). regardless, the authors views are certainly plausible. content is more vitriol than debate or discussion.

Great presentation. Helped me to understand true conspiracies from false, why certain people (Inc me) are or were, more given to conspiracy theories than others and for what reasons. Dr Shermers unraveling of the 9/11 and Arch Duke Franz Ferdinands and JFK assassinations were eye opening, brilliant and conclusive. Highly recommended.
