Ross' self depreciating humour
His stories are very funny, and he is very self aware, proud and kind
Just on TV. Im glad he is young, cause this auto bio is early, highly entertaining, but it means we may get MORE in the future.
He made me laugh while walking down the street
He is a diamond in the rough. Bravo Jay for putting this guy on tv.
I have been a student of Soviet Studies for 25 years. This is a revolutionary approach to any biography. While the size may be daunting it places Stalin in the context of the history. It is a progressive and advanced presentation of Stalin and the era. A page turner. I can't wait for the treatment of the second volume.
Some objectivity. Less personal attacks on their character. Seriously the only person inside your head is you.
I was impressed by her biography of Queen Elizabeth, though that was weighed towards a loving tribute. Millions have a visceral opinion of the Clintons, and millions of words have been used to describe their every action in the Whitehouse. It therefore doesn't offer any balance or effort of objectivity to simply find quotes from people that agree with your position that these people are evil.
He does a great job reading.
Not really. I didn't feel I was learning anything beyond the character attack, so turned it off about half way. And I am not trying to be biased. I have read most modern president bios and enjoyed Clinton and George W Bush. It about understanding the perspective.
I think the author did herself a disservice by putting this out in the world.
Watching it on tv
Penned the screenplay for Tom Hanks
He did his best. Love you Dick Gilmore
Watch Tom Hanks talk to a soccer ball. More interesting than this and you can get through that in two hours. I cant understand the editor hype for this one.
Concentrate on his presidency
It was dull. So many insignificant details. What a bore for a man that had just great ideas
Drawl. Sleep walking
I cant rememer anything its that boring
Read the policy not the politics. This was painful, not sure who would get excited by this, youd have to be in a coma.
She couldnt deliver a line?
Sorry Heather, your stories arent funny, and could have been.
I think she is fab on Chelsea Lately, but this sees like a money grab. So disappointing after Ross Matthews book. More guidance from Chelsea and the authors producers would have saved ths dull, poorly executed lack of entertainment.
I have read most of Mr. Massie's major works and thoroughly enjoyed their readability, construction and information. The reading of this however made one of the most fascinating lives in history in such an interesting time seem dull.
Someone that cares about the material.
I would have advised Mr. Deakins not to use an effeminate voice to narrate Catherine. It was distracting and irritating.
