It's A Good Old World by Bruce Barton.

Volunteers outside the USA: Bruce Barton died in 1967. His work is still protected by copyright in places like Europe, where copyright is author's death plus 70 years, or Canada/Australia (author's death plus 50 years).
In this collection of essays, Bruce Barton, considered to be among the most influential advertising men of the 20th century, uses history, religion and current events of the 1920s to teach common sense ideals. From Jesus to Beethoven to Napoleon to Abraham Lincoln, Barton uses stories of great individuals to encourage the reader to make the most of life and at the same time to build strong character traits. (Summary by Stephen Escalera)
  • Target completion date: October 31, 2008
  • Text source (only read from this text!): http://www.archive.org/details/itsgoodoldworldb00bartiala
  • Type of proof-listening required:: Standard Proof-listening
    -- Do the intro and disclaimer match the instructions in the first post of the project thread?
    -- Are there any long silences or pauses that ought to be edited out? If so, note the time.
    -- Are there any stumbles or repeats that ought to be edited out? If so, note the words and the time.
    -- Is there excessive background noise, a constant hiss or buzz that detracts from the reading?
    -- Did you need to turn your volume up unusually high to listen to the recording? (Or did you find the recording too loud?)
    -- Are the correct closing words used at the end of the recording, as per the first post of the project thread?
    -- Are there 5 seconds of silence (10 if the recording is more than 30 minutes long) at the end of the file?
