From AudioFile:

This is a book of revisionist history, well delivered and highly interesting. Isenbergs position is that Aaron Burr was far from being a scoundrel and traitor, as many of his contemporaries believed, because of the ranting of his political enemies. Burr was, rather, honorable to a fault, independent minded, highly intelligent, creative, and deeply talented in both politics and law--a thoroughly decent man. Golden Voice Scott Brick delivers the goods with the easy lan that has made him so popular as an audiobook narrator. His young-sounding voice is well paced and sometimes carries a hint of tension when the text demands it. He never bobbles pronunciation, even with the many foreign names. The entire package delivers.
