    Roger Ebert is the best-known film critic of our time. He has been reviewing films for the Chicago Sun-Times since 1967, and was the first film critic ever to win a Pulitzer Prize. He has appeared on television for four decades, including twenty-three years as cohost of Siskel & Ebert at the Movies. In 2006, complications from thyroid cancer treatment resulted in the loss of his ability to eat, drink, or speak. But with the loss of his voice, Ebert has only become a more prolific and influential writer.

    Story
    Would you consider the audio edition of Life Itself to be better than the print version?

    Absolutely. I am sure if I had read the book,the long lists of names and places would have been cumbersome. What brought this book to live esd Edward Herrmann's pitch-perfect reading.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I enjoyed the stories and reference to movies and Ebert's positive attitude, but was carried me away into the story was Edward Herrmann. It was both calm and restrained and yet full of warmth and emotion.


    What does Edward Herrmann bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Uh, everything. Intelligence, feeling, drama - this dude is one of the great readers


    Any additional comments?

    did I mention how impressive Edward Herrmann was?
