It’s not the most exciting book I’ve ever listened to, but if you are looking to learn more about the Panama Canal, then you should consider David McCullough’s The Path Between the Seas. He begins with the considerable French effort and focuses mainly on the politics surrounding the venture. It’s not too long, and is filled with McCullough’s typical regard for details and sense of humor. ( )

Like all of McCullough's books, brings the subject alive through primary resources and personalities.
I even found myself interested in the engineering challenges and solutions. The medical and human challenges and personalities like Teddy Roosevelt were what really made me enjoy it though ( )

Amazing story of the building of the Panama Canal at the beginning of the 20th Century. Given the tools and communications available at the time, it is an epic on overcoming incredible obstacles. It would have more stars if engineering was more exciting. ( )

Here's what I wrote in 2008 about this read: "The building of the Panama Canal! First attempt by the French fails; the Americans prevail, despite extremes challenges. A good historical read!" ( )

It's been a while since I've read a David McCullough book even though every one I've read has been great. This, like the ones about the Brooklyn Bridge, the Wright Brothers, the Johnstown Flood (among others) tells a story but includes the political and cultural context as well as comprehensible engineering details.

For Rosalee Barnes McCullough
Første ord
Oplysninger fra den engelske Almen Viden Redigér teksten, så den bliver dansk.
The creation of the Panama Canal was far more than a vast, unprecedented feat of engineering. (Preface)
The letter, several pages in length and signed by the Secretary of the Navy George M. Robeson, was addressed to Commander Thomas O. Selfridge.
Among those who were profoundly stirred by the opening of the canal in August 1914 were Charles de Lesseps and Admirals Alfred Thayer Mahan and Thomas Oliver Selfridge, all three quietly retired, but each still very much alive. (Afterword)
