"Three books, only one worth a listen"
These three books are a classics written by well known historical figures and unknown ones. I went through the prince quite effortlessly. Machiavelli's translation is without any fluff and to the point, and the narrator did a good job.
On the other hand the narrator of the art of war and the book of 5 rings did a horrendous job. He had irregular pauses and did not know the proper pronunciation of some words. I managed to get through the art of war because its a short book, but I gave up and had to return it when the book of 5 rings started..
