For this rousing, revisionist history, the former head of exhibitions at England's National Maritime Museum has combed original documents and records to produce a most authoritative and definitive account of piracy's "Golden Age." As he explodes many accepted myths (i.e. "walking the plank" is pure fiction), Cordingly replaces them with a truth that is more complex and often bloodier.

I own the physical copy of this book but it was cheap enough on audio that i grabbed it. Its an amazing book and the audio is done really well. Great pacing and a good value.
