1. 'Brave Companions: Portraits in History,' by David McCullough

of

(Read by David McCullough; Simon & Schuster Audio; 9 CDs; 11 hours; $39.99)

Historian McCullough has put together a collection of 17 profiles of individuals and groups of historical figures who changed the course of history, and/or our perception of the world. First published in 1991, it is only now on audio, and is well worth seeking out.  Each section is fast paced and fascinating, with profiles of interesting figures ranging from explorers to pilots to photographers.  A few of the pieces feel a little dated, but for the most part they are captivating and eloquently written. Though interesting to hear an author read his work, McCullough’s diction is not as clear as it once may have been.  Still, this is highly recommended.
