    Boldly original and fully documented, this unauthorized yet definitive biography tells the almost incredible story of Joseph P. Kennedy, grandson of a poor Irish immigrant, controversial founder of a great American fortune, and father of the 35th President of the United States, John F. Kennedy.

    Boston Harbor says: "Read the book, don't listen to it."
    "Good book, weak narrating."

    Story
    Would you listen to The Founding Father again? Why?

    I am more likely to read it, its a fine book, but the reading is weak, and if you're used to a great narrator, then this will drive you nuts. The author reads his own book, and you can hear pages turn and saliva build up in his mouth as he reads, he also doesn't pace his breathing well. There are reasons that authors hire readers to read their audiobooks for them, and this one should have.


    What other book might you compare The Founding Father to and why?

    Any history book, its somewhat dry and only interesting if you already find this topic (the history of Boston, the Irish and politics) interesting.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Hire a professional reader


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Irish Royalty in America
