The Way of the World: A Story of Truth and Hope in an Age of Extremism

Ron Suskind, Author, Alan Sklar, Read by , read by Alan Sklar. HarperAudio $39.95 (0p) ISBN 978-0-06-155606-7

Suskind’s take on the downfall of America’s authority begins with what led to the attacks on September 11 and charts the country’s subsequent tarnished international identity. Tackling tough issues with historic disclosures (including the accusation that members of the U.S. government forged documents and lied to win approval for going to war in Iraq), the Pulitzer Prize–winning former Wall Street Journal reporter offers compelling and provocative stories. Unfortunately, Alan Sklar’s narration will surely cause many listeners to lose interest. Sklar tends to drone and his dry, monotone voice bears very little passion or intensity. His uninspired reading lessens the impact of Suskind’s masterful research. A HarperCollins hardcover. (Sept.)
