A Connecticut Yankee In King Arthur's Court
Hank Morgan is a mechanic, an engineer, and a foreman at the Colt Arms Factory. One day he gets into an argument, "conducted with crowbars," with an employee known as "Hercules." A blow to Hank's head sends him back to King Arthur's England in the Sixth Century.
Quickly becoming a newspaper tycoon, an inventor, a showman, politician, and one-man military industrial complex, Hank rises to a position of power second only to King Arthur himself, ultimately challenging all of knight errantry and even the established Church. A remarkably prescient tale, replete with brilliant humor, exciting action, biting satire, and awe-inspiring philosophy, this book shows off Mark Twain's full range of incredible storytelling gifts and his remarkable philosophies of economics, religion, and politics.
This Mark Twain In Person Library recording is an approximation of Mark Twain's own voice, just as his family might have heard the story for the first time in the family library.

I downloaded the audio book and it is starting from chapter 24. I paid $15 dollars for a half book.
but the 2nd part did not download and apple would not let me re dowmload it again and would not get back to me on the reason why. 5 stars for the book -5 stars for i tunes
So yeah, I downloaded this thing and was listening to it and everything was well and good until it got to the part that said, "old, old, unspeakably old" in the first paragraph of the section entitled "a world of explanation." it then cut over to the introduction to chapter 24!
