I haven't read the print version, but since Martin and Emilio narrated it themselves, it made it much more meaningful (and that was the primary reason I bought the audiobook)
Loved hearing about the early days of both Martin and Emilio - I had no idea about their younger years
Great to hear it in their own voices. Please note that there is no "gossip" in this book (no wild stories about Charlie Sheen, etc).
Not an extreme reaction, but a better understanding of these two and their outlook and relationship - very interesting and thoughtful
Agree with other reviewers that the audio quality was only adequate/kind of poor (several spots where lines were repeated, wish there would have been a pause at the end of the book, etc).
Loved that she narrated the book herself. She sounded so genuine and excited about things
Her genuine and upbeat tone. It sounded like she had as much fun reading it as she did living it
Wow, tough to say. Since I am a romantic, I really liked that she knew that Jack Fisk was "the one" immediately
No, I liked listening to it in different sections
My only criticism is that the audio quality wasn't so great - sounded like she recorded it in a room with hard walls (sound bounced off, kind of echoed), but in a way, this added to the folksy-ness
Yes, if you are a fan of Mindy's and enjoy her snappy narration, this is the book for you. Don't get be wrong - I liked it, but somehow, I just thought it would be a little better
A little surprising, but good!
I liked how she raved about Chappelle's Show. I never had seen it and as a result of her recommendation, have begun watching it in reruns and it is excellent. I also liked her advice to teens about high school/popularity, etc.
No, I don;t think this book could be made into a movie (as it is a series of stories)
Mindy did a great job narrating the book and I feel as if I know (and like) her a little better

And you get to hang with Janis Joplin! This is not a book: It is an experience. If you have not heard about Janis Ian you will enjoy it if you like the 60's and 70's music scene. Ian's sexual oriontation does not take up too much space. You get the story bout the man wo attacted her. She is not advating gay rights: To her we who are hetrosexuals are the same. She does an amazing job when it comes to seeing PEOPLE rather than labels. It is worthy every award. This book I mean experience is perfect for a weekend night when you sta home but rather wish you had the bucks for a gig and yes: You will come back to this. T is a feel-good book unlike any other. When you are done you might wan to hear the music. On her website free tracks awaits.
The fact that she is honest
Well. It is not possible to read a show.

This is not my favorite book it is my favorite audio experience. Hopefylly this will be included in "How should I use my first credit?" Section.
