I would not recommend this book to any of my friends because the primary reason this book was written is strictly to serve as a Public Relations move instead of with the purpose of giving a honest perspective on life experience many people are curious know. Instead of explaining how he (Michael Vick) feels he goes out of his way to try to make you believe he is a devoted Bible reading dog lover. By over stressing these points the overall theme and quality of the book is put in jeopardy.
It will be very difficult for me invest time and money into a book by Michael Vick. The most disappointing thing about this book is that he comes across very simplistic and gives little insight into his intelligence. I believe Vick has some intelligence but he completely abandons
This narrator was extremely disappointing. I hope Michael Vick did not pay for this performance. Rodney Gardiner's performance gives Vick a less than intelligent reflection and gives the book the feel of a simplistic high school drop out. The narrator reads with below average expression and poor diction leading to a painful listening experience. I hope I never have the opportunity to listen to any of Rodney Gardiner's performances again.
It does shed some light on some inside football information that true football fans will enjoy but after reading this book I am inspired to learn as much as possible to never come across as dull as Michael Vick did in this book. I feel inspired to make sure my children take advantage of all educational opportunities so that they do not sound as indolent and obtuse as this book reflects upon Michael Vick.
I would recommend this book, especially for Americans and Hispanics, in particular Puerto Ricans. Once you complete this book, you will feel as if you personally know the U.S. Supreme Court Judge. Sonia Sotomayor displays a pleasant easy to like personality that will win over a majority of her readers.
Yes! Because she is brillant, personable and she has a fascinating perspective which is pragmatic and positive at the same time. The biggest reason, is she still needs to complete her life story. I will be interested in reading a future second part to this autobiography.
Since this is an autobiography, her primary role was narrating the author and she did an amazing job. Yet she also performed above average in other characters that played a role in this book.
Yes! This would make an excellent movie. The star of the movie of course would be the Supreme Court Justice of course!
I was extremely disappointed in learning after I purchased the book that the conclusion of the book took place 20 years before the book was published. This means all modern day accomplishments are not included in this book. The book is well written and the narrator was a perfect fit for this role with an amazing ability to capture the culture and language that impacted the authors life.
I would try another book by James Loewen. Norman Dietz was not a good nor poor narrator, but I could not form a strong connection with or identify with Dietz's reading style.
This book is beneficial for public/official records only and preserving the history of how race influenced social conditions in the United States. It is far too long for an audio book, I strongly recommend this those interested in reading the actual physical book or e-readers.
I am very familar with this subject with a strong historical knowledge on this topic and I was able to gain some threads of information that was new to me and increased my knowledge base. Those who are not well versed in this subject will have the opportunity to learn interesting facts in United States history in the late 1800's and the 1900's.
