I think the story is powerful in print, as well as audio. It is a father's journey to connect with and become close to his adult son with special needs. I heard the author interviewed by Emily Rooney, so I decided to get the audio book.
I have two: the author Buzz who narrates this true story and his son who shows wisdom despite his mental age of 9/10 years old.
No. I will have to check them out.
A father's journey to connect with his son.
Wonderful, inspirational book. Thanks Buzz for so courageously sharing your family's story. I am going to recommend that our special education collaborative invite him to come speak to parents and special educators.
Yes, indeed. This was a fascinating look into the life and mind of one of our generation's most influential innovators. You will enjoy this story, even if you are not an Apple person through and through like me.
Steve! Who else?
Monotonous, annoying, clear
Yes, I laughed and cried at various points. I listened to this over several days while I was homebound with the flu. It was a good companion when I did not have the energy to read. I just wish that Dylan Baker's voice did not annoy me so much, especially when he represented spoken comments by Steve.
Worth listening to!
Honest, Insightful, Moving
I often listen to Diane Rehm on NPR, but did not know much about her personal life until I listened to her autobiography. She was so honest and open. I wanted to cheer as I listened.
I love her voice and her sensibility.
Diane's Dream -- the triumphs and struggles of a pre-eminent radio journalist
If you like Diane Rehm, you have to listen to this. Tune into her national radio program weekdays on NPR.
It just was not as interesting as I antcipated. Could not finish listening to the entire book. It was too much of an inside conversation for me to follow.
Book is probably valuable for historians, but not the lay reader like myself.
No narrator. Interview format. I enjoyed hearing Jackie's voice, but I did not have enough knowledge to understand a lot of what Jackie and the interviewer were discussing.
Not a good listen.
