This wonderful and fascinating look at the life of Howard Hughes is severly damaged by the frequent mispronunciation of key words. Forget the mispronunciation of names ("Dore Schary" and "Faith Domergue" to name a couple). Even the simplest of words ("gaffe" and "substantive" being just two of the many) are slaughtered. Forget legal terms like "nolo contendere". The content of the book tries to override these moments, but each mispronunciation jolts one out of the book for 20 to 30 seconds in disbelief. It is a shame that the narrator and/or producer of this audio edition did little or no research before hitting the "record" button.
