    An historical exposé of the mysterious doctor who changed the course of the 20th century, with interviews by George Clooney, Yogi Berra, and others. Doctor Max Jacobson, whom the Secret Service under President John F. Kennedy code-named “Dr. Feelgood,” developed a unique “energy formula” that altered the paths of some of the 20th century’s most iconic figures, including President and Jackie Kennedy, Marilyn Monroe, Frank Sinatra, and Elvis.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Dr. Feelgood to be better than the print version?

    As I listen to a lot of audio books due to being time constrained, the audio version got to the heart of the story very quickly and allowed me to get through the book a lot quicker than if I had read in print.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Dr. Feelgood?

    The JFK revelations.


    What about Don Azevedo’s performance did you like?

    pace and modulation


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes


    Any additional comments?

    This was a great book and revealed a lot about what was actually going on in that era.

    "I have always collected football stories like other people collect stamps, and it's great to get this opportunity to stick them in a book." From the best-selling author of Ricky comes this collection of hilarious anecdotes about football, with stories about the stars themselves, the fans, the girlfriends, the managers, in fact every aspect of the beautiful, and occasionally ridiculous, game.

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    This was an endless stream of pub football random anecdotes and would have benefited from linking the stories into a logical story format rather than the stop/start stuttering style that really didn't work. Ricky Tomlinson sounded like an 8 year old reading in front of his school class.


    What could Ricky Tomlinson have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Not record it!


    What didn’t you like about Ricky Tomlinson’s performance?

    Irritatingly childlike and corny at best.


    What character would you cut from Football My Arse!?

    Ricky Tomlinson


    Any additional comments?

    Disappointing and sorry I bothered.
