Excels in quanity, but could be better.
This is an incredible collection. I loved listening to this much King. However there are two major criticisms. One, the speeches are not in chronological order. Dr. King died at least three times. If the speeches were arranged from first to last, it would be twice as good. Two, there is no reference to what you are actually listening to, unless it was mentioned in the audio. I found myself googling constantly. It would be ten times as good if there was a brief label introduction to each audio segment.
dont believe what they about the speeches.
I purchased this believing that it will include all of the great speeches of mlk, i did not this audio is about 15 minutes long and it doest include i have a dream speech, or his last speech that he made before his death. this is a sad waste of time and money, dont purchase this.
I'm not sure what the previous review was about... maybe there was a problem with the file. This audio book is actually almost 8 HOURS of King's speeches. And it's worth every penny.
