Poor quality recording

Essentially a Q&A with fisk. Interesting with some humorous anecdotes. But not really worth a credit for the length.

Fisk at his best

Fisk displays his encyclopedic knowledge of the middle east, giving broad historical context enthusiastically and humorously

The lecture is cool but the audio quality is so low that you need to like the content a lot just to get through it

The definitive education on the so-called Middle East

It took me a year to get through the book. Audible really should get Robert Fisk's epic narrated, else many will miss out. That would be a real tragedy. How else will we find out? I tell anyone who'll listen this book is the touchstone by which to view the Middle East.
There are chapters which could carry a warning, "readers may find content disturbing and distressing."
