    From the voice of a generation: the most highly anticipated autobiography of the year, and the story of a man who wanted The Who to be called The Hair; wanted to be a sculptor, a journalist, a dancer and a graphic designer; became a musician, composer, librettist, fiction writer, literary editor, sailor; drank too much and nearly died; detached from his body in an airplane, on LSD, and nearly died; planned to write his memoir when he was 21; and published this book at 67.

    What made the experience of listening to Who I Am the most enjoyable?

    I'm a person with dyslexia, at the age of 57, I honestly can't say I've ever read a book cover to cover. What made this so enjoyable was the Townsend narrating the entire book. My first audio book was Life (Keith Richards) I enjoyed it but the downside Keith only,only read a little at the beginning and end. Johnny Depp read half the book, then here's the letdown the last half of the book was narrated by some joker reading the book in the third person. Trying to come across as Keith himself. Second of all I purchased this CD's. 24 to the exact. audible.com is fantastic I can enjoy listening on my iPad in the car, or play it on my PC at home. Kudos I find this just as enjoyable as listening to the music of my generation. Why I never tried this before is beyond me. I highly recommend this book of Pete Townsend to everyone. To me it's like listening to a almost 18 hour song very enjoyable.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Who I Am?

    just hearing Pete Townsend read the entire book, this man lived it so who better to hear from.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    at the moment, I can't answer this question, only about halfway into the book


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    definitely made me laugh more than once.


    Any additional comments?

    will be certainly, buying more I'm also joined the membership program, I also highly recommend that also

  • God, No!: Signs You May Already Be an Atheist and Other Magical Tales

    From the larger, louder half of the world-famous magic duo Penn & Teller comes a scathingly funny reinterpretation of The Ten Commandments. They are The Penn Commandments, and they reveal one outrageous and opinionated atheist’s experience in the world.

    "Penn Jillette,reads the entire book."

    Would you consider the audio edition of God, No! to be better than the print version?

    Very much so, having dyslexia audio books are the answer


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Penn Jillette,of course


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Being married,to my wife who is very Catholic. There is a part in this book regarding a hair dryer, that has nothing to do with religion. I shared it with my wife and my mom of 78 years old they both got a laugh out of this part of the book. Penn goes into it,so I'm not going to spoil it. That alone is worth the price of the book in my opinion.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The man,makes a lot of true points or facts however you perceive it. I'm going to get my wife to listen to the entire book. It's that good!!!
