perfect aside from the phone ringing

the interview provided a lot of insight even though it was so short. sadly it seemed a bit rushed and there was a phone ringing twice in the background at the end, while mr weatherford was talking.

Interview with famous anthropologist

The fascination that Jack Weatherford has with Mongolia come through the interview loud and clear. He makes me want to hop a plane and go see Mongolia myself. They discuss the two book he wrote one about Genghis Khan and the other about Genghis Khans wife's and daughter in the Mongol Queens. I read both books and they are great. They talked about his book on money and one on American Indians but just briefly. I was hoping the interview would provide me with more insight into Weatherford, which it did but I wish there was more. The interview was only 11 minutes. It is great that Audible provides these short free interviews of authors.

Good Interview but too short.

I wish this could have been longer. Jack weatherford is a great writer and speaker. I hope he writes a book about his years in Mongolia, the trials, tribulations, culture and experiences experienced during his research.

Scripted A/Q

This was the most awful conversation that I ever heard between two people. It seems like the questions was written after Weatherford express his comments. The book is not much better either. I'm not a fan of this author at all, even more so after listening to this interview.

A fascinating man

I could listen to Jack Weatherford talk more about his fascination with the people of Mongolia.

Terrible interviewer

While Jack Weatherford throws some light on his life work in Mongolia, I was amazed to hear the interviewer "uhm" "okay" and reflecting one trivial issues that he said. It felt so artificial.
