Thunderstruck By Larson, Erik, 1954- Downloadable Audiobook - 2006

I liked this Biography Documentary DVD. It was comprehensive and informative. I liked this non-fiction biography about two characters. It is 12 hours long. It is too violent for kids to listen to.

Marconi races against incredible odds and relentless skepticism to perfect his invention. Meanwhile, Crippen, 'the kindest of men', nearly commits the perfect crime. Italian inventor
