    An incredible but true account of achieving one of the most awe-inspiring midlife physical transformations ever

    In October 2006, the night before he was to turn forty, Rich experienced a chilling glimpse of his future. Nearly fifty pounds overweight and unable to climb the stairs without stopping, he saw where his sedentary lifestyle was taking him. Most of us look the other way when granted such a moment of clarity, but not Rich.

    Its up there among the books I have listened to. I do listen to a wide variety of stuff and this held my interest all the way through.

    How Rich turned himself from an excessive drinker, over weight and lazy into such a great runner.


    Have you listened to any of Rich Roll’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    no


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    no. I like to listen to this when I am trail running.

    Story

    Amanda Knox spent four years in a foreign prison for a crime she did not commit. In the fall of 2007, the 20-year-old college coed left Seattle to study abroad in Italy, but her life was shattered when her roommate was murdered in their apartment. After a controversial trial, Amanda was convicted and imprisoned. But in 2011, an appeals court overturned the decision and vacated the murder charge. Free at last, she returned home to the U.S., where she has remained silent, until now.

    Would you listen to Waiting to Be Heard again? Why?

    Yes, well written, very well narrated and a good story. I have to say, it makes me very nervous to visit a place like Italy where you are assumed guilty till proven innocent. The book was written so well that you feel every emotion that Amanda goes through.

    A must listen. Especially due to the fact that its Amanda her self that narrates it.


    What other book might you compare Waiting to Be Heard to and why?

    none


    Have you listened to any of Amanda Knox’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    no


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It infuriated me how blatantly the corrupt or upside down the Italian Judicial system is.

    Kevin Mitnick was the most elusive computer break-in artist in history. He accessed computers and networks at the world’s biggest companies—and however fast the authorities were, Mitnick was faster, sprinting through phone switches, computer systems, and cellular networks. He spent years skipping through cyberspace, always three steps ahead and labeled unstoppable.
