Less tedious details which have nothing to do with BHO
not if he narrator .
there is good info in the book, you just need to wade thru too much tedious boredom.
I'm spoiled by professional NARRATION
The author writes a very objective memoir of the Bush years. This is a great story because the author tells the interesting a relevant facts without bogging you down in details/dates/too many names.
Book is pretty entertaining, it's a bit dated and he simplifies some of the science too much.
I was pleasantly surprised this book was written very objectively. Unlike some historians, he doesn't list too many boring details and he explains the principal characters.
The perfect storm of F* ups.
If you want to understand how the war got started, this is a great book. The author does a great job of explaining what motivated Bush and his team, and how they fell into many mistakes. If you're looking for a hate Bush book, this is not for you, this book is factual.
I don't know how accurate Mikes side of the story is, but his life story is very entertaining.
The narrator sounds like Mike Tyson without the lisp. After a few chapters you're convinced it's Mike talking to you. I think he must have worked with Mike because he totally nailed the emotional emphasis and just the right times.
This is a must listen to anyone who followed iron Mikes career. I think almost everyone would enjoy the stories he tells.
Worst narration ever. 95% of the characters are male, so why pick a female? (I'm guessing because the author is female, and she narrates the first part.).
The book only attacks Lance. Lance actually didn't cheat, every other team was doping. Her thesis is "anyone could have won with doping". Lance is a remarkable athlete (who is probably the ass she points out), but she never develops any stories about the amazing things he's done. The book is just 3rd party accounts of how Lance is an asshole and a big cheat.
She's awesome doing female voices, so yes, if the main characters were female.
I had a low opinion of LA until I read this book, now my low opinion is of the author who clearly doesn't understand the demands of tour riders.
LA is not 100% bad as Juliet Macur asserts. If you want to hate LA, maybe this book is for you.
Very entertaining, I never buy abridged books, somewhat glad I made that mistake. I would really like the full book on audio.
Donny boy, the author.
I'm a historical junkie and this is one of the best books ever written. It's very entertaining and full of the right detail of information. Too many history books are written for academics and are very boring. I disagree with LBJs politics, but this book is fascinating, the left and the right should find this a must read.
An inside look on how the NFL works, not just the Jets/Ryan. I hate the Jets/Ryan, but loved this book. I have more respect for Ryan after listening to this book (being a Pats fan, I still must loath him.)
I listen to audio books when I drive. He frequently states "Refer to the PDF download and look at the picture".
surprisingly entertaining. The book is very engaging and makes it hard to stop listening. I actually prefer the narrator over Arnold.
I have new found respect for Arnold.
