Marching Toward Hell: America and Islam After Iraq

Michael Scheuer, Author, Michael Scheuer, Read by , read by the author. Simon & Schuster Audio $29.95 (0p) ISBN 978-0-7435-7168-5

Scheuer—an author, narrator, former CIA agent and chief, and Georgetown University professor—has a hand in every aspect of this book. Detailing the ways in which U.S. foreign policy has actually been working against the country since the Cold War, Scheuer's material is detailed, fascinating and well researched. His role as narrator, however, fails to live up to the high standards he has set for himself. While his delivery is firm and clear, he tries much to hard to impress the listener and convey his material in a straightforward manner, so as not to lose anyone along the way. His voice becomes machine-like and drones on, losing the audience he is trying so hard to retain. The material might be enough to keep many involved, but casual listeners will be disappointed. Simultaneous release with the Free Press hardcover (Reviews, Dec. 24, 2007). (Feb.)
