No. Unless you are a liberal hater who likes to hear the same points and arguments over and over again, there is no reason to listen to this book. I was looking for new information, new analysis, and new insight and got none of this. It was simply rehashing all the old information you've heard.
Greg should have developed new insight and not just retold old stories. The "why" behind liberal behavioral patterns is desperately missing from this book.
Steve wasn't snappy or sarcastic enough as Greg is/would have been. Greg should have narrated this.
I developed more of my own insight listening to this than the book provided. I think I could write a 1,500 word blog post about these same issues and provide you with more insight than the entirety of this book.
Probably not. The narrator was monotone and didn't bring much life to the audio portion of the book.
It was real and authentic.
Not on purpose!
No, not at all. The stories were good but 30 mins at a time was enough.
Soltana, the princess in this story was one of thousands of princesses in Saudi. In the end, she didn't accomplish anything or do anything historic or even memorable such that reading about her specifically is exciting. She just happens to be one of 21,000 members of the royal Saudi family and talks about the (undoubtedly scary) every day life of a woman in Saudi.
The stories are good. The behind-the-scenes stuff is interesting. But I quit after 13 hours. This 20 hour book could have EASILY been 8 hours and exceptional. I love this industry and play games myself. After a while, it just became tedious. I don't need to know EVERY line of every conversation at every cocktail party or meeting.
Where the Suckers Moon by Randall Rothenberg. Another behind the scenes look at an industry from a journalist perspective.
Yes I can. not sure on the stars.
I wouldn't necessarily listen again; I don't listen to things twice. But, I would recommend this to absolutely anyone.
The precise details. I certainly can't remember anything that far back with that much detail. Even if some of it was "enhanced" it brought life to the story.
Her voice made the young Jenna sound very believable.
A few laughs, but most of all horror.
I just finished "Nothing To Envy" about North Korea and i was really surprised to see the similarities between the church of scientology and the state of north korea. When more people want to get out than get in, you're probably doing something wrong!
