What a life! The great part for us is that it is well written. The writer does waste words.
I purchased the 6-hour abridged version and glad that I did. I think the 28-hour unabridged version would have made a great story too long.
Other than the author's exciting life, the book is all about Hollywood. You hear the good, bad and ugly.
This is one audiobook that I will relisten to after the passage of time.
Buy this book before you purchase a dog. If you have already purchased a dog, then both of you read this book. Great insights about our best friends.
Tom does a great job at "hosting".
Eventhough I find politics rather boring this book had some good moments. The one problem is that it makes everyone seem so "human". While I personally like Sarah Palin, this book (if you can believe it) makes it very clear how she was totally unprepared to be president. You'll enjoy the book.
Must reading for any one who wants to know the true story of the Kennedys and how they got their millions.
If you love hearing stories about how movies are made, you'll enjoy this book. I read the actual book about 4 years ago and remembered how much I enjoyed it. The audio book was more enjoyable.
This book puts "human flesh" on how we reached the moon. I found the book enjoyable, informative and rich in details. For me, it answered why we haven't gone further with our space program than we have. The book is a collection of biographies of many people.
If you enjoy books about how the mind works, you will enjoy this book. Imagine this: a mind that can both see and talk, but can't do both at the same time. That is what this author is battling with..the complications of the autistic mind that are beyond belief. This book gives true meaning to the expression: "There, but by the grace of God go I".
This is a great education about the wonderkids of Hollywood. I'm sure the people talked about by the author would love to have this book banned. Sorry, no banning in America. They are just like you and me, except they make millions of dollars and live in unreal worlds. If you like living history and gossip, you'll love this book.
Every American should listen to this audio book. The author does a great job of explaining the Castor brothers from their childhood to current positions as world leaders. Well written and well read by the narrator.
This audio book is like having your favorite uncle sitting beside your bed each night and telling you little segments of history before you go off to sleep. Very pleasant and very informative. This book gives a warm human side to history. If the author had been your history teacher, you would have loved history.
