This proved reliable & the book did not disappoint.
Despite the number of characters, the narrator does a great job & it's easy to tell who's who as you listen.
A great read, certainly worthwhile hearing how, in detail, this part of Agassi's life actually evolved. As a tennis fan I had questions around a lot of what went down with Andre & this book helped colour the background & set straight questions that lingered. It also it gives a great insight into the agony & elation that can come with a life at the top.
Being anti-military as opposed to a buff of this topic, I approached No Easy Day sceptically. Given how steeped in the way of life the writer undoubtedly was, I felt it was an informative & enlightening read.
It's great to be informed about that most ubiquitous technology that is in sooo much of our mobile/online lives.
I'm not a techie, but it's good to know of Google's philosophy & the founders' thinking as time rolls on.
And 3 cheers for Maria Montessori.
Here in Australia there are just a few Montessori junior high schools.
I believe a Montessori high school experience is sooo good for shaping & rounding young teens, the benefits compared to a regular high school curriculum are immeasurable !
This wonderful story was just so beautifully read.
Don't be deterred by the book's length.
It kept me involved, not wanting to pull out my audio player ear buds !
Such is Bower's ability with his voice, combined with Courtenay's story-telling that you know instantly who is speaking, even before they are identified.
Thoroughly enlightening & enjoyable.
