Yes, I would add some additional voices from people in the examples given of various types of addictions. I have a solid background in both neurobiology and addictions, and found myself (while interested in the material) zoning off because of the monotony of the speaker's voice. It needs some variety in voices to keep the listener's attention.
Great practical information. Too monotonous.
This is not a book for an uninformed lay person without some background in neurology.
Intense, Tumultuous, and Satisfying
Jacob was my favorite character because he was a blank slate, a young man without any options when the book begins. He narrates the story as an old man, recalling the early years when he first joined the troupe. Each chapter brings out more of the man he eventually becomes, a man full of integrity and faithfulness to his love for his family and the animals. My heart bled at times as I listened to his journey, and at times I laughed aloud and hoped for Jacob's life to be full of peace and joy.
There are too many favorite scenes in this book to pick only one.
Yes, I wanted to listen to this book in one sitting, but it was impossible due to the length and available time. I could barely wait for commute time to listen. I was both sad and satisfied when it ended.
