This is the perfect example of having the added pleasure of hearing the author tell his own story. Dan's really dry sense of humor and impeccable comic timing makes this an audio book well worth listening to. There were parts that made me laugh right out loud.
Yes, I would definitely listen to some parts again. To hear the background of one of television's most successful series is a real treat to anyone who grew up watching this landmark show. The behind the scenes stories are priceless.
I think I would prefer someone who bothered to read the book ahead of time. Judging from her line readings she frequently didn't seem to know the intent of the sentence. The only time I've ever heard results like that is when someone is doing a cold reading. Also distracting was her mispronunciation of certain names (such as Gavin MacLeod's Love Boat character - Captain Stubing which she pronounced as "STUBBING" as opposed to the familiar "STEWBING") The performance doesn't ruin the experience but it certainly doesn't enhance it.
This book confirms all those rumors of discord that always swirled around The Eagles. It is a fascinating story of growing and outgrowing.
I listen to audio books in the car and with this one I found myself sitting in the driveway at home, unable to stop listening!
Warning: After you finish this book you may be struck with an overwhelming desire to go to your iTunes and delete all the solo Don Henley stuff!
