Can't express how much I really loved listening to Billy Crystal read this book. He is truly one of the great comics of our time. Now at age 65 he not only has some hilarious comments, but also important, poignant things to say about life and death. Looking forward to listening to it again some day soon.
I like the fact that as he weaves through his own life history, he is telling the story of so many baby boomers who seem to be at point in their lives asking, "Was it worth it?"
So personal. So real.
The little Jew who Could
Hoping Billy has many more performances to share with us in the future. Would love to see him work with Steve Martin someday.
A page turner...or ehh...one of those audio books you can't stop listening to. It's a good story with fast paced action and lots of mystery. Perhaps there are some deeper lessons about the partnerships between corporations and governments. It makes some anthropological claims you can agree or disagree with about man's free will. As the story unfolds and the prophetic claims of the Daemon come true, notice your own longing for them to not really be true. That will show you a truer sense of your humanity than what is written. Nietzsche would enjoy this Godless will to power.
This book will make you think again about stories of success. If you're in the business of education or coaching, this book will change the way you approach the process.
I listened to the end so that's saying something. Basically, it's just Laura ranting. It's hours and hours of complaining. Sometimes it was funny. Sometimes it sounded elitest and snobby.
