  • Audition: A Memoir

    After more than 40 years of interviewing heads of state, world leaders, movie stars, criminals, murderers, inspirational figures, and celebrities of all kinds, Barbara Walters has turned her gift for examination onto herself to reveal the forces that shaped her extraordinary life.

    Patricia says: "I know Barbara Walters much better now"
    "Disappointed with abridged version"
    Overall

    I found the abridged version very disappointing. After all the publicity Barbara Walters garnered from talking about her affair with Edward Brooke, it was not even mentioned in this version. Too much of the book was a recital of her career successes.

  • Miles: The Autobiography

    Universally acclaimed as a musical genius, Miles Davis was one of the most important and influential musicians in the world. Here, Miles speaks out about his extraordinary life. Miles: The Autobiography, like Miles himself, holds nothing back. For the first time Miles talks about his five-year silence. He speaks frankly and openly about his drug problem and how he overcame it. He condemns the racism he encountered in the music business and in American society generally. And he discusses the women in his life.

    Diane Havens says: "Dion Graham IS Miles Davis"
    "Too Gritty!"

    After listening to a couple of hours where almost every other word for a four letter one, I finally gave up on the book.

    No


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Dion Graham?

    Probably not


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    I was very disappointed.

    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    The narrator used the same voice for every character so that I couldn't easily follow the story. Narration was so bad I didn't finish the book.
