I heard an interview with the author on the radio and that's why I decided to download this book. Robert Wittman was an engaging guest with a unique accent, discussing a world most of us are not privy to. I think the format of the book and the stories themselves were interesting and what you would expect after reading the description. However, the narrator gave a bland, monotone reading of the book. His attempts at accents were okay at best. There was little variation in expression, which made it difficult to focus on the story... my mind would wander a bit thinking about art or some tangent and I would have to "rewind" my iPod. I would recommend reading the book instead of listening to this rendition.
The three stories in the middle were captivating and well-narrated.
It was difficult for me to get into the first story and the last story. My advice is to power through the first one and skip the last story.
