Listener Opinions

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 by Sydney | 1/31/2013

    " An autobiography peppered with historical references. Well written, but dry. I could not relate to Schlesinger's experiences which made it difficult to stay interested in the book. I still want to read his historical analyses, as I think he is probably a better historian than memoir writer. "
