MILES GONE BY by William F. Buckley, Jr. (unabridged) is presented by Blackstone Audio and comes with what is perhaps the best audiobook app available (see FEATURES, below). “As ever, sheer delight from humor and prose, whatever the political faith.” (John Kenneth Galbraith) In William F. Buckley’s autobiography, woven from personal pieces composed over the course of a celebrated writing life of more than fifty years, you’ll meet all the many sides of the man. You’ll also meet Buckley’s friends: Ronald Reagan, Henry Kissinger, and many others. Self-contained, this audiobook app is perfect for your commute, on a trip, or while relaxing. Based on a library-quality recording, this app was built especially for your iPhone and iPod Touch. No unreadable text, no endless scrolling on a tiny screen. The audio is of higher-than-normal quality, making for a great listening experience that will not tire your ears or grate on your nerves. NOTICE: This app includes the exact same 5-star recording offered elsewhere at much higher prices. It was professionally recorded by Blackstone Audio’s narrator, William F. Buckley, Jr. You are not buying yet another amateur or volunteer narration. No clicks, background noises, throat clearing, mispronunciations, tinny voices or monotones will be found here. “Buckley reads his own essays with a wit and joy worthy of listeners' attention.” (AudioFile) • EXPERIENCE.
