This book was fascinating at first but that tapers off and eventually gets really boring. The reading was great though!
Good book all around.
The voice really turned me off, especially when the narrator tried doing "accents," which were all a generic foreign accent. And it was just a butt-kissing session for the subject.
This was some great in-depth reporting, mixing fact with anecdote and detail. The reading was great and it hooked me well. I wish this guy would read all the books.
I got bored pretty quickly, so I don't think this book was for me. I should have picked something else.
This book had tons of facts and anecdotes I knew nothing about, such as the time the fed chairman slept on his couch.
Great book. Learned tons with the narrative and the facts-- just how I like my books. But I do think he inserted himself too much in it, such as the time he wrote about why soldiers fought (for their buddies or something to that effect).
He could have shown us more about that instead of telling. As a former soldier, I hate it when writers try to discover the "way of the soldier."
Aside from that, it was entertaining and I learned a lot during my roadtrip.
Dr. Drew is that celebrity that I would grab lunch with if I could. The book is fittingly, about just that-- our relationship with celebrity and what it says about us.
I didn't think his study could fill an entire book, but I learned a ton from it.
I had a tough time starting this listen, because I felt to be clunky with detail, so initially had quit it after the first hour.
But I had to do a roadtrip and I'm glad I gave it a second chance. The detail throughout the book made the characters more vivid and I felt as if I knew what they would say later on.
The reporting was great and I think he knows more of the subject than what he was able to put into the book, which gave it authority.
