    One last opportunity to hear the man in his own voice. What a great and privileged life, only surpassed by his own intellect. He embarrasses our current political elites!

    The material is very interesting, but Mr. Buckley's delivery is terrible. He drops his voice at the end of many sentences and is difficult to hear. In traffic it is difficult to constantly be turning the volume up and down. He tends to drone on. A good delivery would have made this a pleasant experience. Unfortunately, it was so tiring to listen to that we sent it back after only about a third of the way through. It would be better to just read the book yourself.

    An Extraordinary story of an Extraordinary man who has lived an Extraordinary Life. I loved this book. It was an inspiration and a joy to hear his voice. Mr. Buckley is a national treasure.
