Hardwick's advise for fellow "Nerdists" is an excellent kick in the pants to use our powers for good (self improvement) instead of evil (self pity). All of his ideas are simple to implement and can vastly change lives. Even integrating one suggestion into your life should have a profound impact. Highly recommended.
Much more of a self help book than a biography. Closer to Tim Ferriss' 4-Hour Workweek and 4-Hour Body.
If you have listened to any of his Podcasts, you know his tome and speed.
The financial and cluster sections closer to the end. And the overall tone to not be afraid to fail.
The workout is probably best read instead of heard.
Excellent short scary story. If you have read or listened to any Neil Gaiman before and liked it, you will not be disappointed.
I waited 10 years to read this novel. I could never get past the first few chapters, but I was completely wrapped up in the audiobook version. I looked forward to working out to continue the story.
The whole premise behind this novel seemed too far fetched. But then again, what do you expect from Neal Stephenson. Maybe if it was not written in present day, I could suspend my disbelief.
This was a good John Scalzi book. If you have read any of his other works, this would be lower on the pile. But much like pizza, even a bad Scalzi book is better than most others.
It was a very pleasant surprise to finish the first file, and start the next file only to have Little Fuzzy by H Beam Piper included. Wil Wheaton's performance of Fuzzy Nation was spectacular as always.
Heartfelt, witty and surprising.
Since there is really only one character, that would be Craig Ferguson
You can feel the emotions as he reads the story.
Craig's timing is impeccable.
If you are a fan of Craig Ferguson, or merely coming to America stories, you owe it to yourself to read this book. Even better, get the audiobook version, and allow Craig to read it for you. His voice would have been in your head anyways.
The attention to detail in this audiobook version is astounding. Having each character voiced by a different person brings the book to greater life than I expected. I completely enjoyed the audiobook version more than the written, and that is saying a lot for a Gaiman novel.
The cast of actors/characters is impeccable.
Answering that question might spoil a few surprises, but Shadow and Wednesday are ideally voiced.
I would listen in one sitting, but the length makes that feat nearly impossible. I did look forward to morning drive time and workouts so I could get back to the story.
Cannot recommended more highly. The best credit I have used on Audible, bar none.
