Clearly the best sports book I have read and in the top 10 of all the books I've listened to
A great athlete with a great flaw
This was a great back story and a great current story of Pete Rose
It is really grating in books about sports when the narrator mispronounces pretty famous names. For instance, the narrator calls Leo Durocher (correctly pronounced Doo-ro-sher) Doo-Rosh-Shay. It is not french. I don't blame the narrator, I blame the producer. There are numerous mispronunciations of names. Not the first time in a sports book, and certainly won't be the last.
Yes- It is a quick read.
Yes - very engaging
Great Engaging Melodic
I don't blame the reader on this, but there were 5-6 mispronunciations of words or Countries - wouldn't the producer catch this?
No, poor narration
Nick or George
Shouldn't the narrator have read the other books? It's pronounced Anna Really not Riley
The history was great and the stories were fabulous. I really enjoyed the leadership tips from the book
Learn how to pronounce the names. When John Salley was said to be on the Pistons, his name was pronounced "Sa-lee" but was pronounced correctly when he was with the Lakers. Also, in Robert Horry's name, the 'H' is silent. There were other things as well. I fault the producers in this, because it has happened in sports books before.
Good not great
A Good Walk Spoiled
Anyone - Edward Hermann, Scott Brick, Dan Hicks, David Feherty
No, it was best broken up into sections
Writers should write, Narrators should narrate
Uplifting. Inspiring. Breathtaking.
Through harrowing and heartbreaking experiences, the story takes you in and welcomes you.
Edward Hermann's personal touch is the highest art of storytelling.
Heroes are made...not born.
