    Story
    (10)

    Explorer, diving pioneer, filmmaker, inventor, and activist, Jacques Cousteau was blessed from his childhood with boundless curiosity about the natural world. As the leader of fascinating, often dangerous expeditions all over the planet, he discovered firsthand the complexity and beauty of life on earth and undersea - and watched the toll taken by human activity in the 20th century.

    Thomas M. Olenski says: "A Politcal Opinion"
    "Too much ranting"
    Overall

    I enjoyed the book somewhat. But there was too much ranting against just about everything. For example it felt like a third of the book was against nuclear power and nuclear proliferation. He makes some good points, but too many over and over again.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: If you’ve ever loved a dog - or even patted a dog - this book, told from the perspective of man’s best friend, will tug at your heartstrings...and won’t let go until long after Welch performs the last word. Enzo knows he is different from other dogs: a philosopher with a nearly human soul (and an obsession with opposable thumbs), he has educated himself by watching television extensively and by listening very closely to the words of his master.

    "Too absorbing"
    Overall

    I loved this book. As narrator, the dog does a great job. And it's only gets in the way at first, Then you get used to it. I was completely taken by the book. It's a book about a family, and uses car racing as a metaphor on life. A funny thing happened while I was driving. I missed two, not one but two exits on the interstate while on a business trip. It was worth it! I got to listen even longer that morning. I recommend this. Read it to find out why "your car goes where your eyes go."
