I found this book as I so loved John Lee's reading. Lee, does a superb job. His tone is rich, full of a multitude of vocal inflections that carries the imagination deeply into this historical adventure. And like a great actor - he never shines so brightly on the material that his 'acting' takes precedence over the reading.
This is a true story about a very large character. Everything in this account comes full circle - and in a very poignant way. Without giving anything away I am going to mention one person. Cary Grant. You will not believe how he fits into this well told story.

This book calls itself humorous. If this is funny I'd rather spend 3 days in the Fresno Auditor's Office of the IRS. If this book is funny I'd rather get a root canal and a simultaneous proctological exam. The vignettes contained within this 'book' of anecdotes are so short and lacking in wisdom I felt robbed. If you feel that killing a chicken with a 2x4 is hysterically funny, perhaps this is the book for you. I think that was the first or second sales story. On a positive note this man must be a genius to have marketed this book. Due to the fact that one must give a star to complete this review I have given that star. Real name: scott stambler
Follet's preface, about how he'd come to write this novel, had me hooked. His effort, research and honesty propelled me into his novel with enthusiasm. The reader, John Lee, does a superb job. His tone is rich, full of a multitude of vocal inflections that carry ones imagination deeply into this historical adventure. And like a great actor he never shines so brightly on the material that his 'acting' takes precedence over the reading. I can't wait to get the sequel. One thousand cheers to Mr Follet for having ventured into terrain so different from his home.

a great ride. deeply thought out, highly entertaining.
Although I have read better Michael Crichton books I believe the listener will be highly entertained and possibly educated about sexual harassment in the workplace. What excites me most is that the book is read by John Lithgow. If you can find Bonfire of The Vanities GET IT. Lithgow plays all characters brilliantly as he does in Disclosure. The story moves well. The characters are 3 dimensional.
