    First the audio part of the book: terrible. Walter Cronkite was a great news anchor but he is a terrible narrator. The book sounds like a news cast, read with a choppy cadence. In fact, if you remember those cheesy school movies in the 70s called something like "And You Were There," also narrated by Cronkite, then you'll think the reading of this book is very similar. But worse for me was the constant distraction of various men of the Constitutional Convention, each read with an accent of some First the audio part of the book: terrible. Walter Cronkite was a great news anchor but he is a terrible narrator. The book sounds like a news cast, read with a choppy cadence. In fact, if you remember those cheesy school movies in the 70s called something like "And You Were There," also narrated by Cronkite, then you'll think the reading of this book is very similar. But worse for me was the constant distraction of various men of the Constitutional Convention, each read with an accent of some sort by various men. Their cadence was slow like they were reading even though they were supposed to be speaking. But there was no difference in cadence when in fact, they were supposed to be reading the poetry they'd written. This sounded like an audio version of a bad high school play. (By contrast, Ethan Hawke and Christopher Hurt--Slaughterhouse Five and Atlas Shrugged, respectively--are excellent readers. Perhaps that will help you determine whether you'd agree with my assessment of Cronkite.) Now, the book: Meh. It's not all you want to know. It scratches the surface of what led to the Convention, covered the Convention to a reasonable extent, then gave the short shaft to the Bill of Rights and its importance relative to the ratification of the Constitution and the promise made by Madison that the First Congress would make the Bill of Rights happen. Perhaps I listened to a different version (it was unabridged, though), but there was nothing at all about the additional amendments. If you want to read a great book about the Constitution and how it came about, read "Founding Rivals" by Chris DeRose. (I don't know whether it's available as an audio book.)
