Great blow-by-blow description of what happened
The Good: The fall of the wall was not easy to understand from the news accounts at the time. We all knew *what* was happening, but not *why*. This book explains the big political picture and gives an exciting account of who did what, when and why in November 1989. I found the audiobook as hard to put down as a well-written thriller. And it was fascinating to see how easily things could have gone differently.
The Bad: Hard to find anything bad to say about the book. The narration was competent and clear, but it didn't knock my socks off, so I gave it four stars instead of five.

A really interesting history of how the wall fell
This book is perhaps not as slickly written as it might be, but it is a fantastic read nonetheless - because the story itself is so interesting - a story that is a such a fantastic series of screw ups by the East German government that if this was fiction you would find it hard to believe!
Even if you aren't into history or politics this is still an interesting read/listen.
