One of those books that will make you nod your head in agreement, like, "Yes, that IS messed up," or "Amen, we need to fix that!" Listening to this for me was a bit like hearing my parents/aunts/uncles tell stories of when they were my age (I'm in my 30s) and I think, "Houses and cars cost HOW MUCH less than they do now and you made as much or MORE than I do today at a similar-level job? No wonder I feel poor and unsuccessful... it was so much easier back then to have the 'American Dream'! ...And don't even get me started about college!"
I got the audiobook of this because I was recommended it in advance as even better than the text version because there was "more to this one". I haven't read the text version, but could still see that it was true - throughout the book, he'd announce, "Alright, I'm going off script here, but... " and either elaborate or give an update or respond to reactions from the text version or tell a story or what have you. So, that was very cool. The author was a great narrator for this book; I can't imagine some dry reading being done of it. It was like having a casual conversation with a friend who has been there, done that.
My only beef was that it was a such a short book. The whole title clocked in at under four hours. And that's with the extras - it probably would have been three hours otherwise. Good... just short.
