I cannot resist a quality historical read (especially a presidential biography).  Such works make for great listens at the gym.

With that in mind, Roy Jenkin’s Churchill: A Biography did not disappoint.  I have wanted to read this book for quite a while – I just could not justify the cost nor the time.  The audio-book format worked perfectly (nearly forty hours later).

A fascinating leader in the midst of ferocious times.  Such courageous victories and humbling defeats.  This book embodies one of Churchill’s most well-known quotes, ”Words are the only things which last forever.”
