This book is a series of meandering musings and random memories. They are not even told in an entertaining way. I tried to tough it out and even skipped ahead in hopes that it would get better. Kirk Douglas is a great actor but did not hold my interest as an author.
The narrators voice was so gravely as to be painful to listen to. I had a hard time understanding him and being able to focus on the story. He definitely is not a good story teller as he spends little time developing his stories. This book is mostly a series of short paragraphs. I didn't finish it and I finish most of the books I listen to.
Being a gardener and back to basics advocate I expected this to be an entertaining listen. I had a hard time finishing it. The authors come off as smug and superior. The narration sounds as if read by a school child giving a report in front of the class. They have some good points but are presented with a very condescending tone.
