The sign of a good autobiography is its humility and honesty, and incredibly, A Bold Fresh is both. The experience of listening to this audiobook reminded me of Sidney Poitier's "The Measure of a Man", which was excellent. Why that is the case is obvious to me now. Simply, audio books that are read by their author communicate the authentic story as it went through the authors mind. The emotions and intonations add so much to the experience, communicating much more than words alone.
Authors take note, if you wish to get to iPod and iPhone customers, it helps a great deal to show that it is worth the time out of your life to read your own material.

If you know Italian you are in luck, if you don't, you need to wait for another version
A smart and pretty Russian chick turned me onto it... although she spoke several languages
laugh, when I realized it would not be English
Wait for a language that you are fluent in and it will be great.
Provides an easy to understand illustration of the economic forces that underlie our ability to get jobs, buy products, save and invest in the bubble popping of the mortgage market, as well as in the coming debt bubble and dollar bubble.
Comparing it to The Lords of Finance, and How Goldman Sachs Came to Rule the World are most helpful for understanding the global economy, and comparing it to Reich's Aftershock is great as a political comparison as that book has a clear political leaning to the left.
Read with emphasis on the meaning of what what being read.
The clarity with which folks participate in different roles, such as cheerleaders for the status quo of how to understand the present economic forces and how they differ to previous market cycles.
a great read
Although he is clearly above average I have never thought Bill was the brightest, like a Charles Krauthammer, Rove or Newt, but he is fair in his analysis of the major issues that dominate our times. Although his views are not deep, but he covers a vast amount of terrain, and exemplifies a majority of our cultural values. It was worth the time, and if you like Bill's program it is easy to listen to his thoughtful tradionalist perspective. If you are on the fence, you will most likely be pleased with the investment of time.
The unabridged version covers a great deal of history with the type of insights into the events that not even the best journalism can provide. Regardless of your political persuasion it is a detailed account that clears up much misinformation as the man didn't want to spend his time challenging the press to clear his name as he had more pressing things to do. His insight into President Obama from his interactions is also a tribute to the Obamas.
If you are a history buff, this is a must listen.
