I thought this book would be more from the perspective of subject of the book. More of a bio. It was almost all from the perspective of the police. Maybe 70 /30 split.
Right at the top. I listen to many different types of books. This one ranks right at the top.
There were definitely some sad moments. I think Billy was looking for the ....I laughed, I cried book. I am not easily moved to tears and I was not here however I could see where some might be.
When I finish a good book a part of me gets sad its over, wishing for maybe one more chapter! This book was no different.
Thanks for sharing your life Billy!
No...Probably not... maybe for free... will not pay for one that's for sure.
In the whole book, there was maybe two or three things that a normal Mets fan would not know. It seemed that the whole book was a history of transactions the Mets made. And not even up to date.
Maybe! The man constantly mispronounced players names. It was so annoying. So bad that at one point I didn't even know who the heck he was talking about. His reading wasn't bad, but as a Mets fan I would like the reader to know how to pronounce the players names.
To many to mention... There would be no book left. It would end up a pamphlet.
Don't waste your time.
If you are a Mets fan and want to read something good try the new Mike Piazza book, or the Keith Hernandez book "If at First" Keith Hernandez also wrote a book called "Pure Baseball" This is a fantastic pitch by pitch account of 2 ballgames where he goes into every little nuance of what is happening at one time or another.
Finally, I am very disappointed in "Tales from the New York Mets Dugout" It is definitely not A Collection of the Greatest Mets Stories Ever Told
Getting to learn a little more about one of my favorite Baseball players. Reminiscing about the days the Mets were winning.
The recap of the grand slam single. Also the review of the 9/11 game brought back memories and gave me goose bumps.
A long shot with a big bat.
I'm a Piazza fan. I enjoyed the heck out of the book. I think Mike did a great job of explaining a lot of his thought process, as well as having some of my questions concerning the Mets and Piazza answered.Lets face it if the hall does not call... "There's something wrong with us, something very, very wrong with us."Last but not least... LETS GO METS!!
Everything... The writing made me feel as if I were there... The narrator was fantastic. I loved the feeling that I was the only one who was allowed in on the secrets of the author and subject.
The character for whom the book is named: Richard Kuklinski
He is awesome. I love listening to his reading.
The Ice Man: Confessions of a Killer
I would rate this book a R rating. Some violent scenes are depicted in the book.
YES! This book has put me on the path to letting go and forgiveness. It softened my heart.
I liked that it didn't try to force anything on the listener. It just was what it was. A great story.
The reader was terrific. Not putting me to sleep and yet not overwhelming the story.
I listen mostly on my commute to and from work. Sometimes I have a cigar and listen. This book was intriguing enough to have me impatient for my next chance to listen.
This book is full of common sense! If you like Stossel you will know what I mean, If you have never heard him before, open your mind for a few hours and you will see that most of what he says is common sense.
I have listen to another one of his books called: "Myths, Lies, and Downright Stupidity". These books compare well to each other.
Have an open mind while listening to this book.
The inside dope daddy-o! Learned a lot about Kennedy the man.
Way to go Bill, who's next?
