The book is a mixture of fable and history. History in the sense of how life might have been in that time period. The material doesn't pull the punches on sexuality, envy, lust, romance, and love. The reader has a great voice, and sometimes that's half the battle. I recommend it, it's a "ok" / "good" book.
All the author does is, well... complain. This is one unhappy guy, with lots of regrets and hang-ups. I thought he'd give insight on how to teach, insight on life, insight on something. He's one negative guy, how did this guy become a famous teacher? Sounds like he never wanted to be a teacher in the first place, which is funny because he says to do what makes you happy.
I thought it was entertaining. No, the author isn't a professional reader, but his southern accent grows on you. I was simply amazed that he drove around the world. Anyone who drives around the world has to have some sort of opinion about things. As a successful business man, his insight was mainly from an investors point of view. He makes it personal though, as if you were in the car and he was showing you around town. You won't walk away knowing the meaning of life, but I think you will be inspired to go out and find it.
One for the older generation. Not quite working for this thirtysomething.
Authors: Very GOOD!
Production/Music: Not Bad!
Ever watched a great television series that you couldn't wait for the next episode to come?! This is sort of like that! It's good solid entertainment! No, you won't solve the worlds problems, get rich in 30 days, or figure out the meaning of life listening to the Pendergast series (or maybe you will!), but you will definitely sit tight glued to your MP3 player! Since this is a series of books, I suggest to download earlier books and listen how the writers evolves the character. The Authors refers to Cabinet of Curiosities just a little, but the book definite stands on it's own if you never heard pervious works. Tt
It's just okay, not cutting edge. Not a very memoriable book. Doesn't leave you feeling like you just saved the world aboard the Enterprise. If you need your weekly does of ST, this is it, nothing more.
It's okay listening.
Very interesting listening material.
Cancer can hit anyone, even an world athlete. If Armstrong didn't have cancer, I'd say he's one cocky son of a gun. Rightfully so, considered what he's accomplished. But he did have cancer, and it was inspiring to listen how he fought his way out of it, cocky and all. Good book, I recommend it.
