Very interesting story of how Hugh Hefner started and an interesting look into his life. The only problem was after a while it started to drag on and on. Overall a very interesting story and it's easy to see why so many men idolize Hugh Hefner; including me!
I enjoyed the book very much, but it is nothing more than a 10 hour monologue. It is very funny in spots and very entertaining throughout, but it tends to just ramble from topic to topic. At times I was asking myself why was I putting credence into the opinion of a cartoonist, but then I realized that I should trust his opinion more than most of the pompous windbags out there giving their opinions, plus Scott's are much funnier.
Rick Reilly is one of my favorite sports writers and this book does not disappoint. This is a "best of" from his SI articles and they are all very compelling. The only problem is with the narrator. I've never had a problem with a narrator before, but it's obvious this one is not a sports fan by the way he butchers so many of the names of the athletes, especially the eastern Europeans.
Interesting and captivating story and the author's interpretation makes it that much more interesting. After hearing the book, I had to see the movie, yeah, the book is far better. The interview with Ken Kesey is a very enjoyable addition to the download.
I enjoyed the story very much, this was my first Agatha Christie book, but won't be my last. The narrator also did an outstanding job and used a wide range of voices for the characters. Toward the end some of the female voices started to blend together, but by that time I was so wrapped up in the story all I could do was concentrate on the facts and wait impatiently for Poirot to reveal the murderer. Well worth the time spent.
