    In 1973, Secretariat, the greatest champion in horse-racing history, won the Triple Crown. The only horse to ever grace the covers of Time, Newsweek, and Sports Illustrated in the same week, he also still holds the record for the fastest times in both the Kentucky Derby and the Belmont Stakes. He was also the only non-human chosen as one of ESPN's "50 Greatest Athletes of the Century".

    Story

    Long, boring and very redundant, Good (short) story buried under tedious details which would have worked better as an appendix.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: If you’ve ever loved a dog - or even patted a dog - this book, told from the perspective of man’s best friend, will tug at your heartstrings...and won’t let go until long after Welch performs the last word. Enzo knows he is different from other dogs: a philosopher with a nearly human soul (and an obsession with opposable thumbs), he has educated himself by watching television extensively and by listening very closely to the words of his master.

    Enjoyed listening to this book. Loved the character of the protaganist and his views on the proper place of dogs in the order of things. Would recommend.

    Without intending for it to happen or knowing how, when, or why it got started, many people now find that they live in a rush they never wanted. If you feel busier than you've ever been and wonder how this happened and how you can keep up the pace much longer, you are hardly alone.

    Pamela says: "Crazy Busy-Nothing New"
    "Hot air"
    Overall

    Don't bother. I fell asleep while listening to this book. Nothing new. Too many words. Waste of money.
