Would you try another book written by David Richards or narrated by Jeremy Clyde?

I found this book boring and written by someone I didn't warm to.

Has Taking Command put you off other books in this genre?

Yes

How could the performance have been better?

It was ok

You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?

None
