I love Malcolm Gladwell. I love his voice I love his thoughts I’ve read and watched so many of his works. I don’t love this. What part of him thinks a subject as intense and curious as the bomber command in WW2 would be enriched by distracting mood music and sound effects. This is not an audiobook it is a pimped podcast. Sorry Malcomson. Can do better.
An amazing take on the wing community as a whole and the types of leadership involved in the evolution of air tactics. Would highly recommend for military pilots or those looking to understand why pilots do the things they do.
Great insights into ww2 and 2 completely different minded approaches to the evils of war
True page turner
A must war history book
As noted in the narration, this is a podcast first, then a book later. A reverse order of the usual. Some unexpected sound effects but it is about entertainment, hence the evolution of dull narrators to actors. Bottom line is that I liked it. MG is on the leading edge of this evolution.
Another great story from Gladwell, he writes fantastic stories that are compeling and interesting.
Loved this book! Got it from my son as a gift in printed form but decided to try the audiobook for when I’m driving. So glad I did! The snippets of real interviews and sound bites added nicely to an already good book. Highly recommend if you like a solid moral dilemma and/or enjoy your history mixed with your science.
Absolutely love this book! So much research was conducted!
Excellent work by Malcolm Gladwell. If you are a history buff or just interested in aviation you will love this audio book.
One always learns so much from Mr Gladwell, and this book is no exception. Apart from his delightful voice and the fascinating account of the evolution of precision bombing, this book stimulated me to find out more about the characters involved.
A terrific « read ».
