Among the best
The details concerning advanced interrogation techniques
Well written and delivered by a great narrator. I found it to be informative and enjoyed the revelations of his work within the CIA as well as a few details concerning his personal life.

A Manhattan ghost story
Not bad, but he has a monotone delivery.
I hesitate to criticize this book based on a couple of factors. First, I respect Luis' service to our country and feel he deserves to be honored solely based on his military experience. Second I absolutely love dogs, and generally, stories about dogs. As I type my two collies are urging me to "go get the paper".
I left this audiobook with the strong sense that Luis sees himself as a victim in almost every phase of his life. He focuses on how he has felt discrimination and/or injustice from restaurant owners, bus drivers, the military, his parents, and others. There is a lot of emphasis placed on just how bad he has it in every phase of his life.
As a disclaimer to my final point I am conservative in my politics. Perhaps others will embrace Luis' affinity for Al Franken and president Obama.
Just not a great listen for me. You will enjoy it if you wish to have the functions of each area of your brain explained in great length. This is followed by a listing of symptoms that may be associated with dysfunction in a particular area of your brain followed by the drugs that can make you whole. I am sure this will be helpful to many people but it was not what I had in mind. I enjoyed Amen's other work as I found it more practical for my needs.
I preferred would have rated change your brain; change your life four stars. I found it to be more practical.
